Selected Neutron Image of the Month

March 2021

Fig 2. Neutron image of the setup 64.2 minutes after being pressurized with CH4 from 1.0 to 81.4 bar, 7.0 °C.

 

Left cell: n-C10D22, right cell: C2D6O. Inner diameter of the measuring cell was 9.0±0.1 mm, outer 12 mm, grey intensity corresponds to transmittance. The regions used for the evaluation of the average intensity are depicted as yellow boxes; the methane phase and the length variable are indicated.

Congratulations to Marios and SCITEK Consultants Ltd  who moved into their new offices in Victory Road, Derby, U.K. on the 10th December 2020.

SCITEK designed, built and installed the Cold Neutron Radiography Facility on the China Mianyang Research Reactor (CMRR) in Sichuan, China.

In addition, they provide advanced engineering services to clients in a variety of sectors including aerospace, defence, power generation and automotive and carry out collaborative R & D programmes with academic and industrial partners.

The IAEA has announced the launch of a new 

Neutron Imaging E-Learning Course with registration being made via the IAEA Portal NUCLEUS. 

Frikkie de Beer has announced his early

retirement from Necsa, Pretoria. In his

32 years at Necsa, he created and made

operational a microfocus X-ray CT facility

that complemented the NRAD facility on

the South African SAFARI-1 reactor that is currently in the process of being upgraded to maintain these facilities as one of the major laboratories in the field of nuclear NDT studies.  He has been involved in many international projects at laboratories around the world and been instrumental in furthering the use of neutron techniques in NDT with students and professional users in South African industry and academia. He has been president of the International Society of Neutron Radiography and hosted the highly successful World Conference on Neutron Radiography WCNR-9 at the Kwa-Maritane, Pilansberg National Park in 2010. We wish him good health and success in his new projects.

News from Argentina that due to the deteriorating COVID-19 situation, the 6th ITMNR meeting in Buenos Aires has been postponed.

After 40 years of successful neutron research in Berlin-Wannsee, the research reactor BER II was finally shut down at the end of 2019. It will be dismantled over the next two decades.
