Observations are reported on the performance of a neutron interferometer using two successive Laue reflections from separated, thick crystal plates. The interferometer makes explicit use of coherence characteristics within the Borrmann fan associated with dynamical diffraction theory. The spatial distribution of the intensity released from the interferometer and the interference effects in the two beams leaving the central focal point have been studied and compared with theoretical prediction.
