Neutron magnetic characterisation

M-SANS Magnetic Small Angle Neutron Scattering
SANS is used for the analysis of 1-100 nm structures, which cannot be characterised by microscopies or when samples are turbid due to multiple light scattering. In KWS-1 beamline magnetic samples are studied with the full polarisation analysis. In KWS-2 the contrast variation method allows for highlighting of particular components.
DNS Diffuse Neutron Scattering
DNS with single-crystal time-of-flight spectroscopy is ideal for the studies of complex spin correlations, and represents a powerful instrument for the soft condensed matter community for the separation of nuclear coherent scattering from often dominating spin incoherent scattering background in a wide-angle diffraction experiment.
MNRefl Magnetic Neutron Reflectivity
With MNR we investigate thin magnetic layered structures down to thicknesses between 3–300 Å and lateral structures from nm to µm, gaining insight into magnetic roughness, magnetic domains, lateral structures...The reflection of polarised neutrons allows to determine density, modulus and direction of the magnetisation vector of buried layers.
