On the Possibility of Using Mn4N as a Neutron Polarizer

Marsongkohadi, Kumiadi Sumaamidjaia, S. K. Paranjpe, M.R.L.N. Murthy & N.S. Satya Murthy



Manganese nitride, Mn4N has been investigated by means of unpolarized as well as polarized neutron diffraction technique. It was found that both (100) and (110) reflections of this compound could produce almost 100% polarized, monochromatic neutrons. Furthermore, the two reflections provide opposite senses of polarization. While (100) reflects neutrons with spins aligned opposite to the magnetization, (110) reflection provides neutrons with spins parallel to the magnetization. This would offer possibility of producing polarized, monochromatic neutrons of either state of polarization by switching from one reflection to the other, without the use of electronic flipping devices.
