Special Issue "Neutron Imaging"
A special issue of Journal of Imaging (ISSN 2313-433X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2017).
Interests: neutron imaging; fuel cells; neutron optics; phase imaging; dark field imaging; strain imaging; porous media; electrochemistry; neutron detectors; tomography
The field of neutron imaging is rapidly developing multimodal and multiscale methods. This development is spurred by advances in detector technology, facile microfabrication of neutron optical components, ability to analyze large image data sets, and the merging and adoption of methods from other disciplines. These new methods are able to uniquely interrogate samples thanks to the penetrating power of thermal and cold neutrons. With the ability to readily transmit several centimeters of many common metals, neutron imaging methods reveal buried and bulk structures or study materials within sample environments, such as pressure vessels, furnaces, magnets, and cryostats. The intent of the “Neutron Imaging” Special Issue is to present a snap shot of the field’s development by covering a range of topics that includes method development and applications in the areas:
• Imaging detectors and instrumentation
• Bragg edge imaging and diffractive contrast tomography
• Neutron phase and dark-field imaging
• Magnetic contrast imaging
• Energy selective methods
• Tomography and multimodal imaging
Papers must be original research of novel results or a suitable review article of the current state-of-the-art.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
