Mon Dec 3 12:29:35 CET 2012
The new deadline to submit your abstract to the Flipper2013 workshop on Single-Crystal Diffraction with Polarised Neutrons
is: December 10, 2012.
The workshop will take place at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France, on January 23-25, 2013
Registration is still open.
There will be no further extension of the abstract deadline.
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
