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:
- Symmetry analysis using representation theory and the SARAh program and ISOTROPY Suite
- Magnetic space groups using the Bilbao Crystallographic Server
- Refinement strategies using the FullProf Suite, GSAS-II and Jana
- 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.
The workshop will be in-person and held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
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.
