POLDI: A Materials Science Time-Of-Flight Neutron Diffractometer
POLDI (Pulse OverLap DIffractmeter) is a time-of-flight thermal neutron diffractometer, dedicated to materials science applications. In particular POLDI is well suited for:
- Spatially resolved measurements of residual stresses in engineering components
- Study of stress/temperature induced phase transformations
- In-situ deformation studies of metallic systems
POLDI is operated by the AMG group of the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging.
