For efficient differential-phase-contrast imaging, we have demonstrated the wavelength-resolved neutron Talbot-Lau interferometry with the wavelength resolution of 0.11 Å over a wide wavelength range of 2.5–7.5 Å at RADEN in the J-PARC Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility. The time-of-flight measurement has clearly showed that the visibility of moiré fringes and intensity oscillations of the interferometer varied continuously with the wavelength, and the wavelength dependence of the differential phase of metal samples was measured. Based on the analysis utilizing this wavelength dependence, we achieved both high statistical precision and high accuracy in the differential-phase-contrast imaging, and succeeded in the quantitative evaluation of the optical potentials of metals.
