How Much Do You Know About  N-Ray?

Neutron imaging is a nondestructive testing method you might have heard of before, but probably haven’t had a chance to use. Despite being a powerful method for inspecting components in many industries, only a small community of NDT professionals are truly aware of neutron radiography, or N-ray.

Are you a part of this small community? Take our quiz to find out:





1. Neutron imaging is more useful than X-ray imaging for…





2. Neutrons, unlike X-rays, are better for penetrating…





3. Neutron radiation interacts most strongly with…






4. True or false: Neutron imaging can only be done with a nuclear reactor.






5. True or false: Neutron imaging can be used in field work.






6. Neutron radiation is produced by:






7. True or false: In neutron imaging, the collimator focuses the neutron beam using electromagnets.






8. Neutron imaging has not often been used as a nondestructive testing tool because…





9. Objects exposed to neutron radiation remain “hot” for how long?






10. What is the ASTM standard for neutron imaging?
