Neutron Interferometer Uses Silicon ‘Lenses’ To Probe Materials

Scientists have demonstrated that a three phase-grating moiré neutron interferometer in a neutron beam could be a robust candidate for large area interferometry applications and for the characterization of materials. The technique would provide neutron interferometry tools with the ability to zoom in and out on details ranging in size from 1 nm to 10 μm – a range that has been difficult to probe with other neutron scanning methods.
