Magnetic structure determined by nuclear orientation

  • B. G. Turrell

In conclusion we suggest that nuclear orientation is a useful technique for determining nuclear spin structures. For a known hyperfine interaction atomic magnetic structures may also be deduced. Measurements on antiferromagnets and the rare earth magnet holmium demonstrate the method, although in the latter case the turn angle cannot be determined because of the limitation of L≤2 radiation. These experiments show that nuclear orientation can at least complement neutron diffraction and at best furnish information about magnetic structure when the latter technique is not applicable. We intend to study other rare earth magnets and more complicated antiferromagnetic structures.
