Neutron scattering

structure, dynamics and excitations of magnetic and correlated materials. the wavelength of a thermal neutron is of the same order as the
interatomic spacing in materials, and therefore neutron diffraction can be used to reveal their structure. moreover,
the neutron has a magnetic moment and therefore neutron diffraction
can be used to determine the ordered arrangement
of the electron spins in magnetic materials as well as the crystal structure. meanwhile neutron spectroscopy can be used to study the excitations of materials,
which can reveal the underlying interactions. We perform neutron scattering
measurements on correlated systems at a number of neutron scattering facilities
worldwide, which include reactor sources such as the Institut Laue-Langevin in France, and spallation sources such as the ISIS facility in UK
