Title: Atomic structure holography using thermal neutrons

Speaker: Dr. Bhaskar Sur, Scientist & Manager, Applied Physics Branch, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories, Canada

Abstract: This talk will present the concepts, experimental data and results of pioneering work carried out at the NRU reactor in Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories on direct imaging of the atoms surrounding an incoherent scatterer of neutrons such as a hydrogen atom via the technique of "wavefront reconstruction" or holography.
