While neutron imaging is a well-established technique for investigations of inner structures and processes in materials, complex systems, and devices, the utilization of polarized neutron beams to visualize magnetic phenomena has been introduced only about a decade ago. In contrast to neutron scattering studies, where the interaction of the neutron's magnetic moment with magnetic states of matter has been exploited for a long time, the direct visualization of magnetic fields in neutron imaging is a relatively new field and is still developing. Here, we give an overview of the status and provide approaches to visualizing magnetic fields with polarized neutrons, together with a report on the latest developments in attempting to record neutron tomographies for 3D reconstructions of magnetic vector fields.
