Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in BuchBeitrag in Buch/Sammelband


Structural characterization at the nanoscale is of increasing interest to understanding the fundamental interactions of small particles. Neutron holography is a novel technique for resolving the local structures of materials at the nanoscale An overview is provided of the two approaches to record holograms with atomic resolution which are the ‘inside source’ and the ‘inside detector’ techniques. The power of neutron holography is illustrated by examples of application to different materials, such as metal hydrides (Pd-H), where the positions of the Pd and H atoms even beyond the first neighbors could be observed. Ongoing technique developments and potential future applications are discussed.
