Because the wave-particle duality applies to neutron beams, optical techniques can be utilized to alter the raw output of a reactor. Such instrumentation may consist, for example, of monochromators, prisms, lenses, or mirrors. The present book, which assumes no knowledge of optics beyond undergraduate physics, provides background theory and applications of neutron optics. Such a discussion will be useful for neutron theorists and experimentalists, usually found among condensed matter physicists and chemists, and graduate students seeking an introduction into this growing field.
