Current and Future Development of Neutron Scattering Techniques for Time-Resolved Studies

Time-resolved experiments using neutron scattering/diffraction, or other neutron-based techniques, provide unique insight into how structures form and evolve over time. By taking snapshots of a material’s structure and dynamics on a time scale relevant to the dynamic changes, its response to...
