The most economical way to increase the neutron intensity at an instrument is an optimization of all the components that are responsible for the extraction, moderation, transport, shaping and detection of the neutron beam. Because the principal interaction of neutrons with matter is of nuclear and magnetic origin, most components rely on diffraction, reflection, and absorption of neutrons by suitable materials. Recently, major breakthroughs in the development of artificial multilayers, monochromators, and filters have improved the performance of neutron scattering instruments significantly. In this contribution we discuss recent progress in these fields and some present and future applications and trends.
