Mechanics of Neutron Radiation and Applications in the Field

This article is a companion piece for my first article published in the April 2020 issue of Materials Evaluation (Ascenzo 2020). While that article provided a broad overview of neutron radiography, this article delves deeper into the mechanics of neutron radiation and provides more examples of its applications in the field of nondestructive testing.
