A neutron tomograph at the IR-8 reactor of the National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute

Abstract

A transmission neutron tomograph developed by the National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute is described. The tomograph is located at the monochromatic neutron beam of the fifth horizontal channel of the IR-8 research reactor. The neutron wavelength is 1.56 Å, the beam cross section is 50 × 40 mm2, the field of view of the CCD-based detector system is 93 × 62 mm2, and the spatial resolution at the sample position is ∼400 μm. The internal structure of samples having different origin has been investigated.
