Description: Neutrons have been used to probe the structure of materials since nuclear reactors became a good source of neutrons. In 1975, LANL became a leader in the field when it began the user program at LANSCE, an intense pulsed spallation neutron source, powered by an 800 MeV linear accelerator. The field of neutron scattering was still relatively young, and this volume sought to introduce the field to a wider audience. A primer explains the techniques and applications of neutron scattering, while specialized, pedagogical articles explain how neutron scattering is used to deduce protein and crystal structure and can also be used to study catalytic systems and superfluid helium. The closing article is a tutorial on Bayesian data analysis and its application to neutron scattering data.
