Scaling Arguments for Dynamic Structure Factors
Inelastic scattering experiments provide rich information on dynamic properties of fractal structures. A variety of scattering experiments have been performed that are sensitive to vibrational modes in fractals, among which inelastic neutron scattering (INS) and light scattering experiments are especially important for investigating the dynamics of fractal structures. The energy of neutrons of appropriate wavelengths λ for structural and dynamic studies corresponds to thermal energies at temperatures from a few kelvin to well above room temperature. Because of this wavelength— energy relation, neutron scattering becomes a powerful technique for studying static and dynamic structure on atomic scales.
