Neutron imaging is a radiographic testing technique used for non-destructive inspection applications across multiple scientific fields. In the current work, the main objective was to design, build, and analyze a compact neutron beam collimator, used in conjunction with an Adelphi compact D(d,n)He neutron generator. Designs were based on sourced MCNP parameter optimization [1], and were built using various machining techniques including water-jet cutting, laser cutting, and CNC machining. With the realized collimator implemented into the system, the thermal neutron flux was analyzed, and suggestions were outlined for future improvements.
