Author(s)
Daniel S. Hussey, Han Wen, Huarui Wu, Thomas R. Gentile, Wangchun Chen, David L. Jacobson, Jacob LaManna, B. Khaykovich
Image-forming focusing mirrors were employed to demonstrate two different modalities of neutron imaging, phase imaging with a far-field interferometer, and magnetic-field imaging through the manipulation of the neutron beam polarization. For the phase

Demonstration of Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Measurements with a Nested Neutron-Focusing Supermirror Assembly

April 21, 2021
Author(s)
Huarui Wu, Zhiyuan Wang, Yao Zhang, Wenbo Mo, Pulin Bai, Kun Song, Zhong Zhang, Zhanshan Wang, Daniel S. Hussey, Yun Liu, Zhe Wang, Xuewu Wang
Neutron-focusing mirrors with both a nested structure and supermirror coatings enable a large collecting area, and consequently a large neutron current gain for mirror-based instruments. A nested neutron-focusing supermirror assembly has been fabricated

Design of a neutron microscope based on Wolter mirrors

April 21, 2021
Author(s)
Daniel S. Hussey, B. Khaykovich, Jeremy C. Cook, David L. Jacobson, Jacob LaManna, Kiranmayee Kilaru, Brian Ramsey, M. V. Gubarev
The predominate geometry for a neutron imaging experiment is that of a pinhole camera. This is primarily due to the difficulty in focusing neutrons due to the weak refractive index, which is also strongly chromatic. Proof of concept experiments

Effects of Cathode Corrosion on Through-Plane Water Transport in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells
