Selected Neutron Image of the Month

November 2020

Figure 7. X-μCT- (A) and n-μCT-based (B) mesiodistal virtual sections through the buccal cusps of the lower molar SMF-8888. The white arrows indicate the positions of two pulp horns barely discernible on the X-ray image (A) but clearly rendered by the neutron-based record (B). The dotted line in (B) highlights the enamel-dentine boundary, not visible in (A).

Newly published by the ASNT: The Nondestructive Testing Handbook, Fourth Edition: Volume 3, Radiographic Testing RT) offers revised and expanded content throughout, including over 150 new color images contributed by practitioners around the world. A chapter on neutron radiography has been added, as well as new technical information in the areas of digital imaging, data processing, and digital image reconstruction

Conference and other news

The IAEA has announced the launch of a new Neutron Imaging E-Learning Course with registration being via the IAEA NUCLEUS Portal.

Within the framework of their PSI-FELLOW-III-3i Program, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is inviting experienced researchers (Postdocs) to submit their applications  for research positions that are part of their new postdoctoral program. This "3i or triple i" postdoctoral program offers unique opportunities for scientific and career development with international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral prospects. The postdoctoral program is a Horizon2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND Action (grant agreement 884104).

The deadline for applications is 30 November 2020, 24:00 CET.

Frikkie de Beer has announced his early

retirement from Necsa, Pretoria. In his

32 years at Necsa, he created and made

operational an 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.

The 1st International Conference and School on Radiation Imaging (ICSRI-2020), scheduled for November 22-26, 2020 at Ferhat Abbas University, Setif, Algeria 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.

The WCNR-11 conference in Sydney was a big success and the proceedings have become available at

The 12th WCNR will be held at the Idaho National Laboratory in 2022 and Aaron Craft has been elected as the new ISNR President.
The 20th World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT) will be in Incheon, Korea, May 31-June 4, 2021.
