The most brilliant and most powerful neutron source in the world, the European Spallation Source ESS, is currently built in Lund. In our project FlexiProb we developed three sample environments for the investigation of soft matter to maximize the potential of the ESS with regard to the very high neutron flux. These are sample environments for small angle neutron scattering (SANS) with in-situ dynamic light scattering (DLS), under gracing incidence (GISANS) and on free-standing liquid films and foams. All sample environments are built on an universal carrier system to ensure a high repeatability and flexibility as well as a minimum switching time between different sample environments. The DLS/SANS module developed in our subproject provides additional control parameters, e.g., the sample stability during the SANS measurements. We developed a special sample holder for about 40 samples which allows the simultaneous measurement of SANS and DLS at two different scattering angles and a precise temperature control.
