What is it about?

This work introduces two advances in the technique known as magnetic pair distribution function (mPDF) analysis, which uses neutron scattering to determine the atomic-scale magnetism of materials. The first advance is the use of spin-polarized neutrons to isolate the magnetic part of the neutron scattering data. The second advance is an automated data-processing algorithm that generates high-quality mPDF data .
