About the School

The school will provide hands-on training on how to determine magnetic structures from powder and single-crystal neutron data. The techniques of representational analysis and magnetic space groups will be introduced and used in a series of examples.


Lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions will cover:

  1. Symmetry analysis using representation theory and the SARAh program and ISOTROPY Suite
  2. Magnetic space groups using the Bilbao Crystallographic Server
  3. Refinement strategies using the FullProf Suite, Gsas2 and Jana
  4. Magnetic structure determination from powder and single-crystal data (constant wavelength)

The school is intended for graduate students, postdocs, and research scientists who have a working knowledge of crystallographic refinement and will benefit from incorporating the techniques of magnetic structure determination from neutron diffraction into their research.

Software downloads

FullProf, GSAS-II, JANA, SARAh, ISOTROPY and VESTA software as well as those found in the BILBAO Crystallographic server, will be used for hands-on examples. The links to download and access these software is found in the Software section
