73 Neutron Radiography Facilities
 
This database contains 73 Research Reactors performing Neutron Radiography distributed over 40 Member States.
Note that this view includes Reactors of the following status:
PLANNED, UNDER CONSTRUCTION, OPERATIONAL, TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN

Neutron, as X-ray, can explore matter, but in a different way thanks to its light elements sensitivity, whereas X-Rays are sensitive to heavier elements. The combination of the two techniques is very efficient in providing a detailed description of the inside of an object. Neutron radiography finds applications in various fields, such as archeology, biology, aeronautics, car industry, material studies, etc.
