The Effect of Gravity on the Resolution of Small-Angle Neutron Diffraction Peaks

Published

Author(s)

David F. Mildner, John G. Barker, Steven R. Kline

Abstract

The resolution ellipses for neutron diffraction peaks at small vectors lie along lines that point to a position vertically above the beam center. This gravity effect is only noticeable for neutron beams at long wavelenghts and with large wavelength spreads.
