Neutron techniques are very useful for metallurgical investigations of nuclear materials, bringing complementary results compared to others analysis techniques like XRD, TEM, APT. Especially, statistical information representative of the bulk material are obtained. Various nuclear materials examples are given here, on: texture analyses, residual stress determination and Small Angle Neutron Scattering before and after irradiation.
