In this book the authors present current research in the study of neutron scattering. Topics discussed in this compilation include the current status and activities of small-angle neutron scattering instrument-SANS-U; analyzing the phase behavior of polymer blends by small-angle neutron scattering; small-angle neutron scattering and the study of nanoscopic lipid membranes; evaluation of the thermodynamic properties of hydrated metal oxide nanoparticles by INS techniques; ultra-low temperature sample environment for neutron scattering experiments; and strengths of the interactions in Y Ba2Cu3O6:7 and La2−xSrxCuO4(x = 0:16) superconductors obtained by combining the angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy and the inelastic neutron scattering resonance measurements.(Imprint: Nova)
