Abstract: Thermal and sub-thermal neutrons are invaluable tools for investigations in fundamental, engineering and medical science. Most neutron applications are non-destructive, as neutrons penetrate deeply into most materials. In the engineering field, neutrons are nowadays mostly employed in residual stress analysis. At the High Flux Reactor in Petten, the Netherlands, neutron assisted experimental techniques such as neutron diffraction, neutron radiography and small angle neutron scattering are used for residual stress, micro-structural and defects analyses in nuclear structural components. Based on this and on similar infrastructures across Europe, a number of collaborative research activities aiming at standardization of neutron cattering techniques have been completed leading to international standards, while some other are still under way.
