This chapter discusses the technique of neutron topography. Important differences between neutron and X-ray topography are noted and ways to optimize neutron topographs by using different instrumentation and neutron-beam characteristics are considered. Using neutron topography to investigate heavy crystals, magnetic domains and magnetic phase transitions is described.
