Present applications are reaching the limitations of the inelastic neutron scattering spectrometer, TFXA at ISIS. The new instrument TOSCA, currently under construction, builds on the strengths of TFXA (a wide energy range, good resolution and ease of operation!, but will have detector banks in forward and backward directions to give a much larger detector area. A longer primary flight path of 17 m will result in a significant improvement in resolution. The open geometry in forward scattering allows a larger range of momentum transfers to be accessed. TOSCA will have a diffraction capability with detectors at a range of angles to provide a good coverage of Q-space and d-plane spacing.
