Joint Workshop JCNS and Flipper 2016

Modern Trends in Neutron Scattering from Magnetic Systems
Single-crystal Diffraction with Polarized Neutrons

3 - 7 October 2016, Tutzing, Germany


An international workshop organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science entitled

Modern Trends in Neutron Scattering from Magnetic Systems
Single-crystal Diffraction with Polarized Neutrons

will be held at the Evangelische Akademie Tutzing near Munich, Germany. Workshop presentations will start on 4 October after breakfast and end on 7 October 2016 at around lunch time. The registration will be opened in the late afternoon of 3 October 2016.

In 2016 the annual JCNS-Workshop series will host the well-established workshop FLIPPER, Single-crystal Diffraction with Polarized Neutrons, which was organized in 2010 and 2013 by the Institut Laue Langevin in Grenoble. This year the JCNS-Workshop is dedicated to neutron scattering from magnetic systems. This will bring related communities together and stimulate discussion and scientific exchange.


Recent realizations of emergent quasi-particles such as skyrmions, magnetic monopoles and Weyl fermions in condensed matter have stimulated tremendous research interestsin fundamental studies of quantum materials and nanomagnetism, as well as in realizing their potential applications for future information technology. As unique probe for studying magnetism, neutron scattering matches the entire range of length- and time-scales relevant for many novel magnetic and electronic phenomena. In the present JCNS-Workshop, the current status and future trends in neutron scattering from magnetic systems will be discussed.

Single-crystal diffraction with polarized neutrons addresses challenging scientific problems related to magnetic ordering which are often intractable with other methods. The classical applications - spin density mapping, magnetic form factor determination, separation between different scattering contributions – are supplemented by topical studies: (i) direct discrimination between cycloidal, helical and amplitude modulated spin arrangements; (ii) interplay between crystal and magnetic chirality; (iii) short range magnetic/nuclear correlations in frustrated systems; (iv) local spin anisotropy at the unit cell level. Current trends and method developments will be in the focus of the FLIPPER workshop.
