Title:
A Neutron Optical Periscope Used for Neutron Imaging
Abstract:
A standard neutron guide is ill suited for neutron imaging, because reflections in the guide destroy the collimation of the neutron beam and let the cross-section of the neutron guide act as a divergent area source. Good neutron imaging installations use a flight tube instead, but with direct sight they also have a large background of gamma radiation and fast and epithermal neutrons. With the availability of highm super mirrors, it has now become possible to build a neutron optical periscope tha...    »
