Description

Neutron scattering techniques are used to investigate a variety of superconducting and magnetic properties. Areas of exploration include, but are not limited to, magnetic ordering and magnetic excitations in superconductors, direct observation of vortex lattices, determination of the London penetration depth by reflectometry, and lattice dynamics of superconductors. Other topics include magnetic and structural properties of magnetoresistive oxides, multiferroics, magnetocaloric materials, magnetic phase transitions and spin wave excitations in antiferromagnets and ferromagnets, and properties of randomized magnets.
