The present paper deals with an efficient use of high-resolution neutron diffraction for material research studies, namely for studies of internal stresses. It is demonstrated that a conventional neutron diffractometer equipped with focusing elements can be used as neutron strain/stress scanner with medium power neutron sources. Principles of this enhanced technique are introduced and an example of internal strain/stress measurements in the vicinity of welds is presented.
