Magnetic Nanostructures
For holographic gratings recorded in superparamagnetic nanoparticle-polymer composites the diffraction efficiency should – next to grating spacing, nanoparticle concentration and grating thickness – depend on the strength of an external magnetic field and the incident neutron spin state.
Towards polarizing beam splitters for cold neutrons using superparamagnetic diffraction gratings
One needs to adjust accessable parameters such as bc , the grating spacing Λ, the grating thickness d0 and ρ, so that peak-values of the diffraction efficiency (or reflectivity) η are suitable for a particular application one has in mind.
