The neutron scattering technique is an indispensable probe for structural investigations of materials, particularly, for observations of light atoms and magnetic moments. Using the IMR neutron powder diffractometer HERMES, which can observe scattering patterns in wide Q rage at once, we have succeeded in performing neutron holography experiments in a Pd-H compound. Holography will become a quite important technique for local structure investigations of materials. Moreover, as the next stage, magnetic holography with polarized neutrons must be promising.
