Move over, lasers: Scientists can now create holograms from neutrons, too

(National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) For the first time, scientists have used neutron beams to create holograms of large solid objects, revealing details about their interiors in ways that ordinary laser light-based visual holograms cannot.
