Neutron radiography and tomography are proven techniques for the nondestructive testing of manufactured components. Neutrons pass through high-density metals easily and provide detailed information about internal, low-density materials. This property is extremely important for many components that require nondestructive evaluation, including engine turbine blades, munitions, spacecraft components, and composite materials. The Phoenix system is the first commercially viable neutron generator strong enough to safely power a neutron radiography system. The Phoenix system will allow for on-site, real-time neutron imaging of manufactured components in a factory setting.
