Ultra-Fast Heating – Induction furnace for POLARIS

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review

An ultra-fast heating induction furnace has been developed in a collaboration between ISIS at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in England and Aarhus University in Denmark (see Figure 1). The fully functioning prototype has been designed for and has been tested at the Time of Flight (ToF) diffractometer POLARIS at ISIS and can reach temperatures of up to 1500 °C in less than 5 minutes. Furthermore, the setup works both in vacuum and under ambient conditions and requires no heat shielding, which reducing the beam attenuation and lowers the level of background scattering compared to standard furnaces. The setups offer: high temperatures, fast temperature stabilisation, large sample volumes, and offer a very low attenuation of the beam. The setups have proven to be ideal for carrying out investigations of advanced materials under extreme temperatures.
