Yes. Neutrons can be easily manipulated into circumstances in which they exhibit wavelengths, and can be diffracted.
Photons interact most strongly with charged particles, but will also interact with neutral particles which possess a magnetic moment, which the neutron does. This effect appears at high energies; most of the time the photon scatters off the neutron.
