Industrial use of NIAG beamlines
Examples of industrial projects
Neutron tomography is presently the only possibility to obtain information about the three-dimensional distribution of soot and ash in a filter monolith. The estimation of the soot distribution in a diesel particulate filter with neutron imaging is possible because neutrons are highly sensitive to the element hydrogen, which is content of soot.
Boron containing brazing solder shows with high contrast in a steel sample. This is due to the high neutron absorption coefficient of boron for thermal neutrons.
