Dear colleague,

We would like to draw your attention to the International Workshop on:

Single-Crystal Diffraction with Polarised Neutrons ("Flipper2013"),

which will be help at the Institut Laue Langevin in Grenoble,France, 
on January 23-25, 2013.

Scope of the workshop

The enhanced contrast between the magnetic and nuclear signals in 
polarised neutron diffraction was first demonstrated in the milestone 
experiment by Shull, Nathans and colleagues in the late 1950s. The first 
measurements were then steadily developed over the following decades 
into the flipping-ratio technique for the experimental determination of 
magnetic form factors and mapping out of spin density in metals and 
intermetallics. Simultaneously, polarization analysis techniques were 
also developed, allowing the unambiguous separation of nuclear, magnetic 
and nuclear spin-incoherent scattering contributions as well as the 
determination of the directional components of the sublattice magnetization.

Continuous improvements in instrumentation and analysis techniques, for 
example the progress in polarimetry and xyz polarization analysis, have 
lead to new applications of polarised neutron diffraction, addressing an 
increasingly wider range of scientific puzzles in physics, chemistry, 
material science and biology.  Recent topics include: the exploration of 
spin densities in smart materials, such as giant-magnetoresistant 
oxides, magnetic shape memory alloys, single molecule magnets and 
multiferroics; the solution to complex magnetic structures, including 
chirality problems; the separation of short-ranged magnetic and nuclear 
correlations in frustrated systems; and the measurement of spin 
susceptibility in superconductors.

To continue to spread the interest in polarised-neutron diffraction 
amongst the different scientific communities, a three-day International 
Workshop on Single-Crystal Diffraction with Polarised Neutrons will be 
held at the ILL in Grenoble on January 23-25, 2013, with emphasis on 
scientific applications, and the promise of new applications
