NIAG - Neutron Imaging and Activation GroupNIAG is a group within the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging LNS , in the division research with neutrons and muons NUM of PSI. 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.
