The principles of neutron spin echo

  • F. Mezei
Chapter I. The Neutron Spin Echo Method
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 128)


We have seen that the NSE technique can be applied for a variety of inelastic scattering processes and for both magnetic or non-magnetic samples. But the real conclusion of this introductory paper is in fact contained in the contributions which follow. At this point I should just like to express my gratitude for many stimulating discussions to a large number of colleagues, first of all to the authors of this volume and to many others at the ILL together with those I have already thanked in the preface. I should particularly like to thank the audiences who attended the talks I have given at various places, whose questions and sometimes difficulties with these ideas were certainly invaluable for my own understanding.
