Abstract

We report the first exit angle resolved magnetic neutron diffraction experiment under grazing incidence. The antiferromagnetic (100) Bragg reflection was excited under grazing incidence on a (001) MnF2 single crystal surface. By a careful control of the exit angle we were able to identify unambiguously the surface scattering. We present the experimental set up and compare some results with those of a CaF2 single crystal.
