NanoMagnetism

@ Michel Brumat

The research of the NanoMagnetism group is centered around the technique of magnetic small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). On the one hand side we employ SANS for experimentally studying the spin structures of magnetic materials, e.g., Nd-Fe-B-based permanent magnets, shape-memory alloys, or magnetic nanoparticles, and on the other hand side we carry out theoretical and simulation work in order to understand and develop the fundamentals of magnetic SANS. More specifically, we use the continuum theory of micromagnetics for computing the magnetic SANS cross sections of real materials, which are determined by microstructural-defect-induced spin misalignment. The Nanomagnetism group is regularly present at the major neutron facilities worldwide such as the ILL, MLZ, ANSTO, or PSI.
