    • Abstract

       

      Slow neutrons have proved to be a very powerful probe for examining materials in general and hydrogenous materials in particular. In this article we review various neutron scattering techniques which have been utilised to investigate different aspects of a variety of hydrogenous materials. Translationally as well as orientationally disordered materials, ferroelectrics, superconductors, metal-hydrogen systems, polymers and biological molecules have been chosen as illustrative examples.
