Neutron Inelastic Scattering as a Probe of Moments in Metallic Systems

Neutron inelastic scattering is one of the most powerful methods for investigating the excitations in solids because the kinetic energy of a thermal neutron falls in the same range as typical excitations in solids. In a scattering event a large relative change usually occurs in the kinetic energy and this is easily measured precisely. The range of frequencies that may be probed is impressively wide with modern methods, ranging from 107 to 1014 Hz, and wave vector transfers in the range 10−3 to 102 Å−1 are currently accessible.
