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 Diffraction group of the Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging.
