NIAG - Neutron Imaging and Activation Group
The NIAG is a group within the spallation neutron source division ASQ
, Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), department research with neutrons and muons NUM
. NIAG is responsible for 2 neutron imaging facilities and activation services available for users from scientific institutions and industry. Neutron radiography is complementary to X-ray radiography due to differences in radiation matter interaction. Neutrons interact with the atomic nucleus, whereas X-ray's as electromagnetic radiation rather interact with the electrons.
| Imaging Facilities
|| Radiography / tomography with thermal Maxwellian spectrum
|| Optional 320kV X-ray tube, NEURAP setup for highly activated samples.
|| Radiography / tomography with cold neutron spectrum
|| Micro-tomography, Energy selective imaging, Grating interferometry.
|| Neutron irradiation services
|| Neutron activation / Isotope production
Neutron imaging and activation for proprietary use are offered on a commercial base. Please contact the NIAG industry responsible
