Imaging & Tomography

Neutron imaging is a technique typically used to analyse samples containing low- atomic number elements that provide best neutron attenuation characteristics (through absorption, scatter), e.g. Hydrogen, Nitrogen or Lithium.

Materials Study

By exploiting the strong attenuation of neutrons by low atomic number elements and their high penetration power for high-Z elements-based materials, neutron imaging/tomography can carry deep-analysis in a non-destructive manner.

Energy and Engineering

Exploiting the high penetration power of neutrons through high-Z elements-based materials, non-destructive, in situ and in operando diagnostics can be undertaken to study dynamic chemical processes and flow in engineered systems.
