Bragg scattering

Bragg scattering

[′brag ‚skad·ər·iŋ]
(solid-state physics)
Scattering of x-rays or neutrons by the regularly spaced atoms in a crystal, for which constructive interference occurs only at definite angles called Bragg angles. Also known as Bragg diffraction; Bragg reflection.

The present study reports on the results of our preliminary experiments of the orthodeuterium single crystal preparation as the UCN converter and its Bragg scattering observed, and further the first trial of UCN production with the single crystal of orthodeuterium.

In the configuration where P [perpendicular to] [tau], half the magnetic Bragg scattering involves a reversal of the neutron spin (denoted by the (- +) configuration), and half does not, and for a purely magnetic reflection the spin-flip (- +) and non-spinflip (+ +) intensities should then be equal in intensity.
