  • MUPAD - 3D polarization analysis

  • bunching of continuous polychromatic beams

  • Larmor precession and reflectometry


A) Conventional magnetic scattering:

Intensities from nuclear Bragg peaks: Inuclear N*k Nk; NkFT{nuclear(r)};

Intensities from magnetic Bragg peaks: ImagneticM*k Mk; M k k s(k)  k ;

s(k)  FT{magnetic(r)};

magnetic structure factor

Iinter[N*k Mk+ M*k Nk] Pi;

Higher visibility of magnetic(r) by nucl.-magn. Interf.:

Iinter depends on direction of incom. Polarisation Pi to magn. interaction vector Mk

The component of Mkalong Pi is measured.


B) Spherical neutron polarimetry

Blume (1963) : calculation of polarisation Pf(Pi) for magnetic + nuclear scattering:

Pf= N*k NkPi - M*k  Mk Pi + M*k ( Pi  Mk ) + ( Pi  M*k )  M k +

N*k Mk+ M*k Nk - i [ N*k Mk- Nk M*k] Pi

Measuring direction and magnitude of Pf for few reflexes as function of of Pi

is avery efficient way to determine magnitude and direction of Mk .

This method requires B = 0 at the sample!

In practice, complete information on Mk is obtained from measuring

3 orthogonal components of Pffor 3 orthogonal components of Pi

II) MIEZE setup with bunching using the full beam beam after analyser

replace analyzing mirror by RF-coil (resonance frequency F=2B;  -condition )

E   T/2 in arrival time for spin up and spin down at the detector.

E = E·T/t  v3 ·T(like in spin echo); T is fairly constant for a velocity band of 5-10%.

Necessary condition for overlap of both signals:

 = f L2 / (mv3) with /4 = D

f : change of energy by the bunching flipper

For L=10m; =10Å; D = 2 1 MHz:

f = 0.8 10-8 eV;

f = 2 B;  = 6.8 10-8 eV/T

I = sin2Dt

Quantum-mechanical view of bunching; beam after analyser there is no classical view of it!

The variation of k = k1 - k2 due to f is not cancelled

by the MIEZE condition and leads to an extra phase

difference d between both waves at the detector.

Application of bunching beam after analyser

  • MIEZE at SANS instruments (no analyzer near sample)

  • SPAN-like NRSE spectrometer with very high resolution?
