Diffraction

Diffraction Diffraction-based techniques are best described as being super microscopes that can ‘see’ and ‘feel’ atomic phenomena without disruption or modification of the materials being investigated. By probing crystalline matter with X-ray or neutron beams and precisely measuring the angle at which the diffracted beams interfere constructively (diffraction), novel aspects…

Imaging

Imaging Imaging uses neutron and X-ray radiation as non-destructive probes to investigate objects and materials for pure and applied research. The output from the instruments is in the form of radiographs (2D images), image slices and tomograms (3D) which are analysed on high performance computer workstations to extract information relevant…
