Abstract

This article underlines with examples of studies for energy related materials and processes how important and useful the technique of neutron imaging can be for our future energy supply. With the help of the particularly designed configurations for each such study it becomes possible to derive essential information for the material properties and their change in a non-invasive manner.

The four mentioned examples (PEM fuel cell, Li-battery, hydrogen storage and nuclear fuel inspection) cover a very wide range of applications and demonstrate the high potential of the various used methods in neutron imaging.
