Title The scattering of polarized neutrons by a magnetic material
Abstract We address the properties of the cross-section for the magnetic scattering of polarized neutrons. Results are given for cross-sections that describe total scattering, diffraction (Bragg scattering) and inelastic scattering events. The properties discussed flow from basic principles, namely the condition of detailed balance in scattering and the invariance of the sample's properties to a simultaneous reversal in the directions of time and the polarity of the magnetization. Attention is given to features that can arise with a non-collinear arrangement of the atomic magnetic moments and anisotropic interactions between the moments.
