Neutrons, which are a penetrating yet non destructive probe, are ideally suited to studying the structure, organisation and motion of molecules responsible for the physical properties of materials under a variety of conditions. Applications are in fields as diverse as colloid and polymer science, earth sciences, pharmaceutics, biology and engineering.
This book will be of interest to both present and potential future users of neutron sources working in these areas, as both a useful reference and a comprehensive overview.
