Research activities;

Stress measurement by neutron diffraction is a non-destructive technique that uniquely provides insights into stress fields deep within engineering components and structures.

Over the last two decades the diffractometers available for engineering neutron diffraction have evolved from adapted traditional Ďall-purpose' instruments, designed to balance the competing requirements of the various user communities, to dedicated engineering strain scanning instrument optimized for engineering measurements.
