Neutron beam techniques, such as neutron scattering, have a widespread use. An overview of up-to-date technical information on neutron scattering techniques and on instrumentation for neutron scattering is presented in this publication, which draws upon the outcome of an IAEA technical meeting. It presents the main applications utilizing low and medium flux neutron sources, that could be the object of research and development or are relevant in education and training. It is intended to support research reactor and accelerator facilities in developing their neutron scattering techniques and expanding their neutron scattering capabilities.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the world's center of cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up as the world's "Atom's for Peace" organization in 1957 within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies.
