Magnetism in Metals and Alloys Studied by Neutron Scattering

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 92)


The study of the physics of magnetism started with the simple question: “why does a permanent magnet attract iron and nickel?” and, after a long journey, reached the question: “how can the magnetism of iron and nickel be understood?”. This was one of the main topics of discussion at the International Conference on Magnetism held in Japan in 1982 [3.1]. However, a unified interpretation of the problem could not be obtained. One reason why this historical problem has not been resolved comes from the ambiguous character, localized or itinerant, (Appendix A.20) of d-electrons which are the origin of the magnetism in metals. In order to study the itinerant or localized character of d-electrons, the dynamical properties of the magnetic moment need to be examined by means of neutron scattering. In particular, for the study of Fe and Ni, a high flux of epithermal polarized neutrons is indispensable. However, it is very difficult to make such a neutron source with present nuclear reactors.
