Paper Abstract

Neutron microscopy is in the initial stage of its technological development. We pin our greatest hopes on the use of ultracold neutrons (UCN) as the preferred method of investigation. The experiment here shows that it is possible to build the neutron microscope with UCN in spite of the largely disturbing action of gravity. However, this possibility is presently limited by the low intensity of available UCN sources. The most promising sources are phase contrast and polarization neutron microscopes.
