Event description
Neutrons to look inside

About this event

How can we look inside opaque structures to discover their properties without destroying them? Neutron Imaging (NI) allows us to see inside materials and examine the processes within them, in a similar way to X-ray imaging, which is well known from medical applications. Neutrons are able to pass through materials to a depth that depends on the specific attenuation properties of that material. Neutron imaging thereby allows non-destructive inspection of objects and materials for basic and applied research.

White-beam imaging is based on the attenuation of the neutron beam by internal structures in the object through absorption or scattering. Tomography is performed by rotating the sample and reconstructing a three-dimensional image from a series of cross-sections.

Join us to discover how the neutron and x-ray imaging facilities at ILL allow scientists from all over the world to obtain detailed three-dimensional images of important objects and materials.

We invite teachers and young learners aged 14 to 19 to attend the virtual event with their school classes or as individuals.
