Holography with a neutron interferometer

Diagram of neutron holography experiment.

(a) The off-axis method of optical holography of semitransparent objects introduced by Leith and Upatnieks. (b) An artistic depiction of the neutron holography experiment.

This was created as a paper figure for an experiment using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer to perform neutron holography of a spiral phase plate. The figure compares the original optical method of holography to the new method (using neutrons instead of photons).
