Neutron imaging was first used successfully in 1935, shortly after the discovery of the neutron by James Chadwick. Since then it has developed and diversified in such a way that it is now used in research for a wide range of applications. Today, neutron imaging is at a pivotal point in its history. With the emergence of digital cameras and the rapid development of digital detectors with better spatial and temporal resolution, neutron imaging has developed into a valuable, reliable technique whose importance for materials research is finally being recognised.
