Must neutron speed and diffusion speed be comparable for neutron scattering experiments to be probe atomic diffusion?
Neutron scattering experiments are sometimes used to study atomic diffusion in solid materials. My intuition is that the typical speeds of the atoms diffusing in the material--say, the diffusion ...
Do small-angle coherent scattering experiments really see coherent effects over arbitrarily large distances?
Short version After integrating over all possible outgoing angles, the total cross-section of coherent elastic scattering from a fixed target of characteristic length $L$ scales like $L^4$. Does ...
Liquid-gas transition critical point is believed to share the same universality class as the 3D Ising model. We know that the liquid-gas transition is characterized by a phenomenon called critical ...
I have tried a google search and checked my condensed matter books but I can't find out what pulsed neutron diffraction is and how it differs from inelastic neutron scattering.
I believe in Neutron Scattering the neutrons after hitting a nucleus can bounce in any of 360*3 dimensions -> 1080 degrees? Why is this so? Shouldn't it only bounce "off" the neutron in approximately ...
