Description

IUCr Congress Satellite Workshop on the Role of Magnetic Symmetry in the Description & Determination of Magnetic Structures

Venue: Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada (near Toronto).

A three-day workshop on the "The Role of Magnetic Symmetry in the Description and Determination of Magnetic Structures". Hands-on tutorials on the exploitation of magnetic symmetry in ISODISTORT, FullProf, JANA, TOPAS, and the Bilbao Crystallographic Server.

Focus: Lecture presentations and hands-on workshop tutorials will focus on the role of magnetic symmetry in the solution and refinement of magnetic structures.  This will include discussions of magnetic neutron diffraction, the proper description of a magnetic structure (e.g. supercell, wave or irrep-mode parameters), magnetic space groups and superspace groups, magnetic systematic absences, the use of symmetry operators to constrain magnetic models, and the use of symmetry in widely-available structure solution/refinement packages.

Target Audience:  Because many of the methods and tools for applying magnetic symmetry to the solution and refinement of commensurate and incommensurate magnetic structures are relatively new and developing rapidly, this workshop will be of interest to experts and novices alike.  Students, post-docs, faculty and industrial scientists with a strong interest in the crystallography of magnetic materials should plan to attend.  We anticipate between 30 and 50 participants.
