We propose to build a novel neutron scattering spectrometer at the SINQ neutron source at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The project includes: 1) A secondary spectrometer - CAMEA - based on a novel concept by Prof. H. M. Ronnow, which offers up to 100 times more efficient neutron detection. It is this secondary spectrometer that we request funded by R'Equip.2) Upgrade of the primary spectrometer - monochromator, and the neutron guide system, which will bring a factor of 12 higher neutron flux. This upgrade will be undertaken by PSI.Combined the 3 orders of magnitude gain in neutron detection efficiency will result in a state-of-the-art spectrometer, which will be particularly suited for parametric studies under extreme conditions - high magnetic fields, very high pressures, and small samples.The applicant group proposes a specific list of frontier experiments in the field of strongly correlated electron materials that will become possible with the new spectrometer. But the instrument will become part of the Swiss user facility for neutron research and as such benefit scientists from all of Switzerland and international collaborators.
