Title Neutron diffraction by magnetic crystals, including V2O3 and DyB2C2.
Abstract A theory of neutron scattering by magnetic ions is developed and applied to diffraction by crystals in which ions in the unit cell are not equivalent on account of a lack of translational symmetry in their environments. The development demonstrates a close connection between interpretations of neutron and resonant x-ray magnetic Bragg diffraction, in terms of an atomic model. Cross-sections for neutron diffraction by powders and single crystals, including polarization induced interference between nuclear and magnetic amplitudes, are considered. By way of illustrating the theoretical development, cross-sections are predicted for two materials, V2O3 and DyB2C2, on the basis of findings from extensive studies, using resonant x-ray diffraction, of their spatially anisotropic distributions of charge and magnetization.
