About the School

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

The format will follow past workshops. But this year it is back to in-person student attendance! 

Lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions will be presented in a hybrid mixture of in-person and virtual. These 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, GSAS-II and Jana
  4. Magnetic structure determination from powder and single-crystal data 

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.

Workshop Location

The workshop will be in-person and held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

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.
