Workshop description: This highly interactive workshop is aimed at providing
the essential theoretical foundations and some working experience on solving
and refining magnetic structures from neutron powder diffration data. The
essential formalism of propagation vectors, Shubnikov groups and
Representation analysis will be covered in a series of lectures, and applied
in tutorials sessions, with the help of computer programmes such as Sarah.
Neutron instrumentation for magnetic powder diffraction studies will be
presented, and refinement techniques using popular packages such as GSAS and
FULLPROF will be discussed. The participants will have the opportunity to
apply these methods on example data sets, and are highly encouraged to bring
their own data, which will be analysed with the help of the tutors.
