Neutron imaging – past, present and future

Stroboscopic Imaging 1

By Juliette Savin, Information Manager

Neutron imaging was first used successfully in 1935, shortly after the discovery of the neutron by James Chadwick. Since then it has developed and diversified in such a way that it is now used in research for a wide range of applications. Today, neutron imaging is at a pivotal point in its history. With the emergence of digital cameras and the rapid development of digital detectors with better spatial and temporal resolution, neutron imaging has developed into a valuable, reliable technique whose importance for materials research is finally being recognised.
