Small angle neutron scattering is a well-established tool for the determination of microscopic structures in various materials. With the ultrasmall angle neutron scattering technique (USANS), structures with sizes of approximately 50 nm to 50 μm can be resolved by a double crystal diffractometer (DCD). USANS signals recorded with a special DCD were used for tomographic purposes investigating the macroscopic structure of a sample with a maximum resolution of 200 μm. Thereby, macroscopic regions within the sample with different ultrasmall angle scattering properties, i.e., with different microscopic structures, could be imaged by the means of tomographic reconstruction from projections (on a macroscopic scale).

    Incoherent elastic neutron scattering (IENS) has been widely used to measure intramolecular atomic mean square displacements (MSDs) of proteins in powder and in solution. The instrumental energy resolution and the wave vector transfer (Q-range) determine, respectively, the time and length scales...

    We have measured the excitation function of quasielastic and elastic scattering, at backward angles, for a range of energies from below to above the Coulomb barrier, for the 7Li+144Sm system. Barrier distributions were exctracted from these excitation functions by a numerical method. From the...

    Many older neutron cross-section evaluations from libraries such as ENDF/B-VI or JENDL-3.2 exhibit deficiencies or do not cover energy ranges that are important for criticality safety applications. These deficiencies may occur in the resolved and unresolved-resonance regions. Consequently, these...

    Low energy cross sections from the collision of nucleons with light mass nuclei show sharp as well as broad resonances upon a smooth, energy dependent background. Those resonances may correlate to states in the discrete spectrum of the target. To interpret scattering data of that type requires a...

    The dynamical properties of bicontinuous microemulsions have been studied with neutron spin echo spectroscopy around length scales corresponding to the correlation peak q0. Comparison of samples with different contrasts for neutrons shed light on the two modes dominated either by variation of...
