The concept of the coherence length of the neutron is explored. The generally accepteddefinition of a Gaussian wave packet based on the method of the beam preparation, andthe singular de Broglie's wave packet are considered. Possible ways of measuring thecoherence length are discussed.

wave packet, coherence length, polarization, superposition, interference
