Study of Localised Electronic Excitations by Neutron Scattering

  • R. J. Elliott
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 112)


Neutron scattering allows the spectroscopic study of the energy levels associated with both nuclear and electronic motion. With the advent of neutron sources with higher incident energy the upper limit of the range covered will be extended from say 0.1 eV to perhaps 1 eV. It is therefore appropriate to consider what types of experiment will be profitable in this area. The brief for these lectures is to consider localised electronic excitations.
