Inelastic neutron scattering measures the dynamical processes in materials, i.e. the spontaneous fluctuations that experiences samples when interacting with neutrons. An inelastic neutronspectrum is obtained from measurements of both energy and the momentum transfer between the neutron and the sample. This short dissertation explains fundamental concepts of the inelastic neutron scattering process, describes instrumentation, and gives a couple of materials applications were inelastic neutron
