Neutron optics involves studying the interactions of matter with a beam of free slow neutrons. This book discusses two major sources for the production of beams of free slow neutrons: (1) fission reactions at nuclear reactors and (2) collisions in particle accelerators (small ones, spallation sources) of proton beams with targets of heavy atoms. There will also be a focus on the very active topics of neutron imaging (NI) and neutron spin optics (NSO). Finally, the book will also present applications of neutron optics in biomedicine, such as Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) and related techniques.
