The first neutron Fourier diffractometer at the pulsed neutron source, the High Resolution Fourier Diffractometer (HRFD), is described. The HRFD combines both high neutron flux at the sample position, ∼107n/cm2/s, provided by the IBR-2 high flux pulsed reactor, and high resolution, very close to 0.001, over a wide range of d-spacings. The paper deals with the basic principles of HRFD, its design, and performance. Examples of structural experiments are also given.
