Dr Burkhard Schillinger (MLZ / FRM II)


In the absence of available beam time at FRM II, we invested time to downscale detectors, computed tomography equipment and software used at the ANTARES neutron imaging facility to small, compact and portable versions that can be used at smaller low-power reactors where classic scattering experiments often cannot be performed due to lack of intensity.
CT setups including experiment controls and 3D printed components were used and installed at reactors in Idaho Falls, in Prague, Santiago de Chile, Bariloche and Vienna. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will endorse further installations. The talk will give an overview about external neutron imaging projects based on FRM II developments.
