    Abstract

    A combined x-ray and neutron diffraction study has shown that the so-called "triple-q⃗" structure is not the correct model of the magnetic structure of neodymium. The x-ray data showed only the Bragg reflections originating from the double-hcp lattice. Hence, all additional reflections observed below TN by neutrons are of magnetic origin. Additional neutron-diffraction data have shown that the magnetic structure must be described by modulation wave vectors with components both parallel and perpendicular to the 〈100〉 axes.
