Inelastic scattering of neutrons by spin waves in terbium

Hans Bjerrum Møller, Jens Christian Gylden Houmann

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Measurements of spin-wave dispersion relations for magnons propagating in symmetry directions in ferromagnetic Tb; it is first experiment to give detailed information on magnetic excitations in heavy rare earths; Tb was chosen for these measurements because it is one of few rare-earth metals which does not have very high thermal-neutron capture cross section, so that inelastic neutron scattering experiments can give satisfactory information on magnon dispersion relations.
