Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) is a powerful non-destructive technique to study the inhomogeneities formed during the synthesis of materials such as ceramics, cements and alloys. The method is useful for studying large molecules such as polymers, biomolecules or magnetic domains which have applications in materials development. This publication presents the work and results of an IAEA Coordinated Research Project focusing on the development of components like collimators, monochromators and position sensitive detectors, for improving the throughput of the instruments, fostering the effective utilization of research reactors and establishing links between developing and developed facilities. The publication will be of interest to the users and operators of research reactors wishing to develop an instrument and foster collaborations for capacity building.
