Applications of Neutron Imaging and Future Possibilities

Abstract

Neutron imaging applications exploit the power of neutrons to penetrate through metals and measure small concentrations of hydrogen and lithium with high sensitivity. The recent advances made in digital imaging devices have enabled many novel neutron imaging experiments and methods. This article attempts to highlight a few recent experiments in energy storage, engineering materials and multiphase flow that demonstrate the range of neutron imaging applications using conventional techniques with state of the art detectors and neutron imaging instruments. All of these applications would benefit from higher resolution (time, spatial, neutron energy) and we speculate on the ability of new methods to meet these needs.
