Abstract: Quantum-mechanical correlations, or the quantum entanglement. of nuclear spin and spatial degrees of freedom can be observed with neutron scattering. The underlying concepts in quantum mechanics are discussed in the context of two recent experiments, which utilize the total scattering and the Compton scattering of neutrons.
