Nuclear break-up as a tool to study neutron correlations is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. First a time dependent theory going beyond mean field has been developed and shows that correlations between nucleons can be probed through nuclear break-up. Secondly, nuclear break-up of He-6 on Pb-208 target was studied at 20 A.MeV using a secondary beam of He-6 produced by the SPIRAL facility at GANIL. From the correlation function, a strong contribution of the di-neutron configuration of He-6 is found.
