Neutrons and X-rays help investigate new materials for gas turbines

Since the post-WWII, gas turbines have developed to become more efficient, which led to increased gas temperatures inside the turbines. The materials currently used cannot withstand such high temperatures. Neutrons help investigate new materials that resist to these severe conditions.
