Neutron diffraction

Neutron diffraction reveals structural information on the arrangement of atoms and magnetic moments in condensed matter. Single-crystal diffraction provides the most precise and detailed information but requires crystal samples of suitable quality and size. Otherwise samples exist in a form in which some of the structural information is spatially averaged and the corresponding experimental technique generically referred to as ‘powder diffraction’.
