Hi and welcome on PANDA! We hope that you will like our instrument.

PANDA team - Astrid, Igor, Chris, Alistair, Mario, Michal, Anton, Nikolaos and Sebastian



Panda publications represent results on magnetic exciations and phonons in

  • strongly correlated systems
  • frustrated systems
  • superconductors
  • other model materials
  • multiferroic materials

and on hybridization effects of phonons and magnetic exciationa.

Sample Environment

Reaching low temperatures, high magnetic field and high pressures brings serious limitation for sample size and signal/noise ratio. If you consider application of special sample environment (everything below 3 K and/or with magnetic field), you should read about our limitations.

  • dimensions of the cryostats
  • usual cooling times
  • restrictions in movement and reachable Q/E space
  • remarks about available high field magnets

If you want to learn details about PANDA, the best is to use our prepared configuration files for neutron raytracing programs.

  • McStas code
  • Simres code

Data analysis

After the experiment, you usually obtain only a few kB of well formated ASCII data produced by our instrument control software NICOS.

  • Matlab macro to read datafiles with metadata
  • Python macro to read datafiles with metadata
  • UFit suite to do advanced data analysis and evaluation
  • TAKIN for resolution calculation and fitting
