Spectrometer Instrument Control Environment

Welcome to the web site for the Spectrometer Instrument Control Environment (SPICE).  SPICE is a LabVIEW based program designed for control of neutron scattering instruments.  Currently, SPICE is being used on the HB1 and HB3 triple-axis spectrometers at the High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  This web site will be divided into 5 sections:
