# The First Two Decades of Neutron Scattering at the Chalk River Laboratories

## Abstract

**:**

**Q**technique, the fields of lattice dynamics and magnetism and their interpretation in terms of the long-range forces between atoms and exchange interactions between spins took a major step forward. Experiments were performed over a seven-year period on simple metals such as potassium, complex metals such as lead, transition metals, semiconductors, and alkali halides. These were analyzed in terms of the atomic forces and demonstrated the long-range nature of the forces. The first measurements of spin wave excitations, in magnetite and in the 3D metal alloy CoFe, also came in this period. The first numerical estimates of the superfluid fraction of liquid helium II came from extensive measurements of the phonon–roton and multiphonon parts of the inelastic scattering. After the first two decades, neutron experiments continued at Chalk River until the shut-down of the NRU reactor in 2018 and the disbanding of the neutron effort in 2019, seventy years after the first experiments.

## 1. Introduction

## 2. The Early Period 1949–1951

#### 2.1. Structure of Fluids and Solids

_{2}and CO

_{2}with 70 meV (1.06 Å) neutrons selected by a NaCl monochromator from the thermal spectrum at NRX. The experiment was designed to elucidate the atomic structure of the molecules, and the measurements were compared with calculations based on the scattering of the neutron by systems of two- and three-point molecules assuming no inelastic scattering. The calculation for O

_{2}matched the variation of the scattered intensity with angle reasonably well but lay above the experiment for CO

_{2}at low momentum transfers. It was surmised that since the CO

_{2}gas was quite close to the liquid phase, the vapor may have had characteristics of the liquid pattern, which would have removed the intensity at low momentum transfers. While care was taken to avoid scattering from the steel container, the weak scattering from the gases, including multiple scattering, was comparable with the measurements with no gas in the scattering chamber. The experiments were clearly right at the limit of what could be done at that time, and great care was taken to avoid systematic errors. A second paper [8] noted the surprising similarity of the quantum mechanical and the classical formulations of scattering by D

_{2}gas when the energy transfers are neglected, even though the mass of the scatterer is close to the mass of the neutron in that case.

^{2}to maximize the scattered intensity, and the distance from crystal to sample was about 72 in. to permit small take-off angles, 2θm from the monochromating crystal and hence access short wavelengths and high energies. With care, the upper and lower limits on incident neutron energy were from 50 eV to 1 meV, although the easily accessible range was 10 eV to 20 meV. The main bearing was from a Bofors anti-aircraft gun, which could support 500 lbs of counter and shielding at a distance of 72 in. The brass crystal table was precision made and could be read to 0.01° with a vernier. The counter arm, 2θm, and crystal table, θm, maintained a 2:1 angular relationship with spring tensioned steel belts and pulleys to better than 0.01° over a 90° rotation. The neutron energy (wavelength) was under motor control, via the take-off angle 2θm, with a minimum angular step of the arm of 1/16°. The beam was taken from just outside the heavy water core of the NRX reactor, and it provided a flux of all wavelengths of 4 × 10

^{7}neutrons/s at the monochromator with a horizontal divergence of 0.13° and a vertical divergence of 1.0°. The detector was a tubular BF3 proportional counter enriched to 96% with B10 with associated counter electronics all designed at Chalk River. The monochromator crystals, initially synthetically grown NaCl, LiF, and natural CaCO

_{3}, and eventually large crystals of aluminum and lead, were usually placed in transmission geometry so as to fill the whole beam with neutrons. It is clear that the competing demands of intensity and resolution were well understood as well as the effect of λ/2 and λ/3 contamination on any measurements. For example, the (222) reflection from LiF is nearly absent because of the opposite signs of the scattering lengths of Li and F. Careful studies were made of the resolution and bandwidth of the spectrometer. The spectrometer was in use from around 1949 up until the 1980s in various modifications, the latest of which was as the sample scattering axis on the C5 triple axis crystal spectrometer, which is a great credit to the original robust and accurate design.

#### 2.2. Nuclear Physics and the Consequences for Inelastic Scattering

_{3}counters arranged symmetrically around the neutron beam to give enhanced sensitivity. The scattering chamber was evacuated to avoid air scattering. The scattering from a Cd sheet thick enough to absorb nearly all the incident neutrons was compared with the scattering from a thin sheet of incoherently scattering V. In the case where the scattering cross-section is much smaller than the absorption, the ratio of the scattering to absorption cross-sections of Cd can be written

^{2}, and the constant K is related to the counter efficiency. The ratio, corrected for absorption in the V standard and for order contamination, was measured for neutron energies between 20 and 400 meV. This was compared with the Breit–Wigner formula for a single resonance at 176 meV and found to be in good agreement. Similar measurements were made by the same method on the ratio for Sm and Gd [14]. Sm was consistent with a single resonant level, but Gd could not be described well with a single resonance. Slight systematic departures from the Breit–Wigner theory suggested to Brockhouse and Hurst that inelastic scattering might be the cause via the change in wavelength upon scattering.

_{3}counters. The incident neutron energy was 350 meV. The intensity transmitted by the Cd was measured for each of the ten thicknesses. The Cd transmission for the Al sample is shown in Figure 3. The solid line in the body of the diagram corresponds to zero energy change on scattering, and the open circles indicate the actual transmission and correspond to a net increase in neutron energy upon scattering. The deviation from the solid line increases in the order Pb, Al, C, corresponding to larger energy transfers as the mass of the scattering nucleus decreases.

^{113}with spin 1 and for Sm with a single resonance in Sm

^{149}with spin 7/2. Gd had contributions from two resonant isotopes. For Dy, the ratio $\frac{{\sigma}_{s}}{{\sigma}_{a}}$ was 0.2, which is too large for the approximations made in the analysis to be accurate. The resonances in Rh and In were at energies of 1260 and 1450 meV, which were well outside the accessible neutron energies available for the experiment.

## 3. The Period Prior to the Invention of Constant-Q (1951–1957)

When these two conditions are met, a peak may be seen in the scattered intensity plotted as a function of the final neutron energy, E′, or the energy transfer to the crystal, E–E′. For a monotonic lattice, the frequencies are expected to separate into three branches, corresponding in the low-frequency limit, to the familiar longitudinal and two transverse sound waves.

**Q**, is 95.1°. Measurements were made with the crystal angle rotated by increments, δ, from the angle, Ψ

_{B}, the angle between the [002] axis of the crystal, and the incident wavevector,

**k**

_{B}, for Bragg scattering. The energy distribution was measured with a second crystal spectrometer, thus constituting a rudimentary triple-axis crystal spectrometer. The set-up with fixed E and variable E′ is equivalent to a chopper spectrometer with fixed incident energy and variable scattered energy determined by the time of flight of the neutrons from the sample to the counter. Then, it is difficult to be sure which phonons will satisfy the energy and momentum conditions or whether they will be in high symmetry directions. Sometimes, the branch of phonons, transverse acoustic (TA) or longitudinal (LA), could be assigned, but often, they are not. Since these were the first recorded phonons, the scattered neutron intensities, referred to as neutron groups, as well as the first experimental ν(

**q**) dispersion relation are shown in Figure 4 and Figure 5. Four points on the TA branch were established and one was established on the LA branch, but the remainder were of unknown polarization. The position of the TA phonons matched a sinusoidal curve with an initial linear slope corresponding to the transverse velocity of sound in aluminum. The authors noted that similar inelastic neutron scattering experiments were being carried out by Jacrot in Paris [21] and by Carter et al. at Brookhaven [22].

**q**, there is a polarization vector, an eigenvector, whose components satisfy Equation (7) above.

**q**lies in a mirror plane, for example the $(1\overline{1}0)$ plane of a cubic crystal, one may take one component of the polarization vector, say U

_{3}, in the z-direction along the plane normal, and then the other two components, U

**q**lies in a second mirror plane, U

For these cases, the equations may be written in terms of interplanar force constants, which are equivalent to the forces along the length of a simple linear chain, as was pointed out by Foreman and Lomer [25]. The equation for one direction may be written

With the crystal spectrometer set-up, the background from cosmic rays or fast neutrons coming down the incident beam or through the shielding was measured by turning the analyzer crystal off its Bragg position. The resolution in

**k′**was estimated from the collimator geometry and the mosaic spreads of the monochromating crystals. The incoherent scattering from vanadium at the elastic position gave the energy resolution.

**k**, is short. The difference count also serves to subtract the fast neutron background. The velocities of neutrons scattered at Φ = 90° were measured with a simple Fermi chopper which produces 240 pulses per second, with width in time of 140 μs. The time to traverse the 4.45 m flight path to the counter permits the scattered energy E′ to be measured. The scattering process is neutron energy gain by phonon annihilation. The energy resolution of the set-up was of order of the width of the observed neutron groups.

**q**were specified. Then, this process was iterated to obtain values of

^{2}in Equation (11) is a selection rule for the intensities of the phonons. In the ($1\overline{1}0$) and (001) mirror planes, one of the polarization vectors has to lie perpendicular to the mirror plane, i.e., along the [$1\overline{1}0$] and [001] directions, respectively, while the other two polarization vectors have to lie in the respective planes. Only the transverse mode in the plane is allowed because of the selection rule. However, the TA phonon with [$1\overline{1}0$] polarization can be seen in the (001) plane. For [100] phonons, the transverse displacements in the [010] and [001] direction are equal, so the TA modes are degenerate.

#### 3.2. Lattice Dynamics of Germanium, Silicon, and Diamond

**q**goes to zero, and 3n − 3 are optical branches, longitudinal LO or transverse TO, where ν is finite at

**q**= 0. In special directions, [111] and [001], in a mirror plane, the normal modes are strictly transverse or longitudinal. For

**q**in a mirror plane such as ($1\overline{1}0$), there are two branches with polarization vectors normal to the plane and four branches with eigenvectors in the plane. The scattered neutrons occur in groups satisfying Equations (2) and (3). In the Born–von Kármán theory, the frequencies ν

^{2}are eigenvalues of a 3n × 3n determinant, which in symmetry directions factorizes into n × n and 2n × 2n determinants, making the calculations simpler. The cross-section for the creation or annihilation of one phonon integrated over energy is similar to Equation (11)

**τ**. Once an estimate of the phonon frequency was found, it was straightforward to alter the conditions slightly to come closer to the symmetry direction.

_{coh}= 0.018, σ

_{inc}= 5.10, σ

_{abs}= 5.08 bn). By alloying Mn and Co together for a concentration of 0.42, the average coherent cross-section can also be made small, namely (σ

_{coh}= 0.007, σ

_{inc}= 4.08, σ

_{abs}= 26.7 bn). The theory of incoherent inelastic scattering was given by Cassels [34]. A slow neutron may be scattered inelastically when a neutron excites or de-excites one phonon or more than one phonon (multiphonon) modes. For an incoherent scatterer, the momentum change of the neutron does not impose any conditions on which phonon modes are excited. Then, the probability that a neutron changes its frequency by energy hυ is proportional to the number of vibrational modes between $\nu $ and $\nu $ + d $\nu $.

_{3}counters. The Be-Pb difference pattern as a function of average scattered wavelength is shown in Figure 9. The region marked “elastic scattering” is a frame overlap from the previous burst of the Fermi chopper. The scattering centered near 1.8 Å is the inelastic scattering of interest. Corrections for chopper transmission, counter wavelength sensitivity, air attenuation, and scattering were made. The most troublesome correction is for multiple scattering, where a neutron creates or destroys two phonons in one scattering event or the annihilation of one phonon followed by the creation or annihilation of a second phonon in a second scattering event. The calculation of the two-phonon scattering requires the integration of the double phonon cross-section over the observed spectrum [36,37]. Both effects give intensity over the whole region of the one-phonon scattering. The corrected vibrational spectrum for V is shown in Figure 10. The low-frequency part of the spectrum matched a Debye spectrum corresponding to a Debye temperature, θ

_{D}, of 338 K, as found from low-temperature specific heat measurements.

#### 3.4. Structure and Dynamics of Liquid He^{4}

^{4}were reported by Henshaw and Hurst in 1953 [38], thus beginning a field of endeavor that continued for over half a century. The results corrected for background and the change of effective volume with scattering angle were accurate to ±7%, while double scattering and the effect of resolution were noted to be smaller than the statistical error. The main finding was the position of the first peak in the structure factor at 2.15 ± 0.0.11 Å

^{−1}. This peak was attributed to a peak in the radial distribution function, g(r), at 3.6 Å.

^{4}cryostat with a monochromatic beam of neutrons of wavelength 1.04 Å from an NaCl monochromator at temperatures of 5.04, 4.24, 2.25, 2.15, 1.95, and 1.65 K and covered a range of density from 0.095 to 0.145 gmcm

^{−3}. The scattering was measured for angles between 4 and 80° (Q between 0.42 and 7.77 Å

^{−1}). The angular resolution was taken to be the width of the KBr {002} diffraction peak, which is near the maximum in the structure factor. The results were corrected for ambient background, effective scattering volume in plate geometry, and instrumental resolution. The multiple scattering was calculated to be negligible. At large Q, the scattering would be expected to decrease in a similar way to the scattering from free atoms, i.e., in an uncorrelated incoherent way. The experimental points were divided by the differential cross-section of a free He atom and the result was normalized to make the average quotient unity at large angles, since g(r) is unity at large r and S(Q) is unity at large Q. The assumption inherent in this normalization is that most of the scattering is incoherent and that the coherent scattering that reveals the structure of liquid He

^{4}is restricted to small angles and in the region of the peak in S(Q) around Q = 2.057 Å

^{−1}. The measured energy loss for scattering by a free He atom at the peak of the structure factor is 2 meV, which is small compared with the incident energy of 75.8 meV. Thus, the assumption that a diffraction measurement integrates over the inelastic spectrum is reasonable at 2.057 Å

^{−1}although not at 6.04 Å

^{−1}, where the energy loss is 17 meV.

^{4}at the λ-point. This is not to be expected, since there is a change in the velocity distribution at the λ-point but no change in the spatial distribution. With the assumption that the normalization procedure captures the coherent scattering, the radial distribution function rρ(r)/ρ

_{0}was calculated from S(Q) by Fourier transformation. While the radial distribution function shows spurious peaks below 2.5 Å

^{−1}due to the finite Q-range of the data, a shell of neighbors around 3.8 Å and also departures from uniform density around 7 Å are observed. The area under the main peak corresponds to about eight nearest neighbors, which would be the case for a body-centered cubic material.

^{4}were reported in [40]. Measurements were made at 1.27, 1.57, 2.08, and 4.21 K, below and above the λ-point of 2.2 K, with the rotating crystal spectrometer [41] providing incident neutrons of wavelength 4.14 Å (4.77 meV). A peak in the excitation spectrum was observed at a scattered wavelength of 4.5 Å (4.04 meV) corresponding to an energy transfer of 0.73 meV and wavevector transfer of 1.87 Å

^{−1}. Measurements were also made with the Chalk River filter chopper spectrometer [19], and the two sets of measurements were consistent. The measurements of the excitation spectrum, Figure 11, agreed with previous neutron time-of-flight measurements [42,43]. It was noted that as the temperature was raised toward and through the λ-point of 2.2 K, the excitation energies decrease and the widths of the peaks increases. At small momentum transfers, the spectrum tends toward a linear phonon relation and at higher wavevectors follows a form consistent with the Landau [44] roton curve. Under a pressure of 21.4 atmospheres, the scattered energy decreased by about 0.09 meV, which was also in agreement with the prediction of the Landau theory. These experiments marked the beginning of a series of experiments of the inelastic scattering from He

^{4}over a period of 50 years by Henshaw, Woods, Cowley, Svensson, and collaborators.

**Q**need not be included in the discussion in this case.

_{0}, about 17% of neutrons of wavelength λ

^{−1}(which cannot be observed in H

_{2}O with neutrons because the scattering is primarily incoherent), and beyond are shown in Figure 13, over a limited range of neutron energy gain (11 meV) and loss (6 meV). Brockhouse considered there to be a qualitative separation of energy scales in Figure 13 corresponding to the broad distribution of scattering beyond ±3 meV and a nearly elastic contribution at lower energies. At wavevectors lower than 1.88 Å

^{−1}and greater than 2.9 Å

^{−1}, the distinction between the two distributions is less clear, although a fitting process can establish the relative amounts of each. The broad spectrum can be fitted to a calculated spectrum for a monatomic gas of mass (16 + 2 = 18) at all wavevectors, and at 8 Å

^{−1}, all the scattering can be attributed to a gas of mass 18. For H

_{2}O, the quasielastic scattering has a maximum at Q = 0 and has diminished to zero at 5 Å

^{−1}, as shown in Figure 14, and it follows a Debye–Waller like form with $\overline{u}$ about 0.4 Å. The width of this distribution increases with Q and the different kinds of diffusive motion, jump-type and continuous, which have different Q dependences. Brockhouse concluded that both contribute to this width. The fact that the broad inelastic contribution could be simulated by a gas of mass 18 indicated that the scattering observed originated from scattering by the whole molecule. Measurements with the filter difference spectrometer [19] in neutron energy gain at 300 K showed the presence of a peak in the scattering around 60 meV, which is in the same energy range, 30–110 meV, as the band of hindered rotations observed in Raman scattering by Cross et al. [48].

^{−1}, at which wavevectors there had been a clear separation between the inelastic and quasielastic contributions in H

_{2}O. The inelastic contribution is far smaller for D

_{2}O because of the ratio of the scattering cross-sections, 19/168. At a resolution of 3 meV, it was difficult to separate the two contributions. The broad part appeared wider at the higher wavevectors but is still narrower than expected on the basis of continuous diffusion. However, the correlation function that enters does include effects from the oxygen atoms, and so the scattering would be expected to be different.

_{0}= 4.964 meV and an energy resolution of 0.2 meV. The data were corrected for fast neutron background, air scattering, second-order wavelength contamination of the incident beam, counter efficiency, and multiple scattering. Twenty measurements at different scattering angles were used to create a grid of S(Q,ω) in steps of 0.2 Å

^{−1}and 0.05 meV, as seen in Figure 15, which was then Fourier transformed to obtain the self-correlation function G

_{s}(r,t). Only diffusive broadening of the quasi-elastic peak was observed over the whole range of ω (50 meV) and Q (2.0 Å

^{−1}). The energy width, W, of the diffusive peak, corrected for resolution, followed the relation

#### 3.7. Magnetic Structure of Chromium Oxide

_{2}O

_{3}(T

_{N}= 318 K) was determined by Brockhouse in 1953 [51]. Measurements were made at 80 and 295 K with 1.303 Å neutrons from a crystal spectrometer, and the reflections were indexed on the basis of the rhombohedral unit cell. Strong increases in the intensities of the {110}, {211}, and {200} reflections at 80 K were ascribed to magnetic Bragg scattering. Four Cr ions lie on the <111> diagonal of the unit cell, and three possible antiferromagnetic structures may occur, namely ↑↓↑↓, ↑↑↓↓, and ↑↓↓↑. Values of the magnetic structure factor were calculated and compared with experiment, and it was concluded that the ↑↓↑↓ arrangement was consistent with the strong intensity increases of the {110}, {211}, and {200} reflections and the absence of a magnetic contribution to the {210} reflection. With a polycrystalline sample, it was not possible to assign the crystallographic orientation of the Cr moments.

The energy analysis was carried out by stepping the scattered neutron wavelength through 1.3 Å by varying the angle of scattering from a second Al “analyzer” crystal. The intensity at zero energy transfer, corrected for ambient background, nuclear incoherent and multiple scattering, was expressed as a cross-section by calibration with the known incoherent cross-section of vanadium and shown to follow a 3d form factor with values in the forward direction of S = 5/2 and 2, respectively. That is, the Q-dependence of the scattering was shown to be magnetic and originating in the scattering from the known magnetic moments. Both materials showed energy distributions that were consistent with a Gaussian form. MnSO

_{4}showed an energy distribution no wider than the instrumental resolution, but Mn

_{2}O

#### 3.10. Spin Waves in Magnetite

_{3}O

_{4}, were reported by Brockhouse in 1957 [54]. To put the paper in context, it was generally thought that the excitations out of the fully ordered magnetic state were wavelike by analogy with the vibrations of the crystal lattice. However, only integrations over the dispersion relations contribute to thermodynamic measurements such as magnetization and low-temperature specific heat. The theory of neutron scattering by spin waves had been worked in the previous decade (here, theory was ahead of experiments), and it was shown the neutron-spin-wave system should obey the same conservation laws in momentum and energy as the lattice vibrations, namely Equations (2) and (3).

^{3+}(S = 5/2) ions on A sites and 8 Fe

^{3+}and 8 Fe

^{2+}(S = 2) ions on B sites. The ions on A sites are antiparallel to those on B sites, leading to ferrimagnetism. At temperatures below 119 °K, the Verwey transition, the Fe

^{3+}and Fe

^{2+}are ordered on the B sites. There are six interpenetrating magnetic sublattices, and therefore, there is one “acoustic” mode that goes to zero energy at

**q**= 0 and five “optic” branches. The question arose: “Could the magnetic excitations be seen above the other contributions to the scattering, especially since Fe and O are strong coherent scatterers and give rise to intense lattice vibrations and there is a large diffuse contribution from the impurity content of the crystal?” Brockhouse estimated that the total incoherent scattering, both nuclear and magnetic, was between 5 and 8 bn per Fe

_{3}O

_{4}formula unit. Multiple scattering, in this case neutron inelastic scattering preceding or following Bragg scattering in the crystal, will augment the incoherent scattering. With characteristic thoroughness, measurements of the intensity integrated over energy in the form of a differential scattering cross-section, dσ/dΩ, calibrated with a standard V sample, were made and shown to be consistent with the estimates of intensity. In the experiment, measurements were made around the (111) reflection, which is primarily (97%) magnetic. Since the measurements were made at a relatively small angle, 8.1°, fast neutrons coming down the main beam would have been a problem, and tight collimation was used. Close to, but not at the (111) peak, dσ/dΩ, becomes very intense, as had been seen previously [55], and it was the investigation of this intensity that yielded the spin-wave behavior under energy analysis.

^{−1}. It was not possible to decide on the basis of the initial experiments whether the dispersion relation was linear or quadratic because of the scatter. However, the line through the data certainly did not correspond to the velocity of sound in magnetite and therefore was not a phonon dispersion relation seen through the magnetic cross-section (magnetovibrational scattering). For a linear dispersion relation, the dominant exchange interaction, J

_{AB}, it was 23.2 K (or 2.0 meV, 0.48 THz). On the basis of the latter number, the calculated Curie temperature in a molecular field model would be 1050 K, which is not too far from the actual value of 850 K. On this physical basis, it was concluded that a quadratic dispersion relation was more reasonable.

A newly designed triple-axis spectrometer was being built at the NRU reactor, and immediately following the restart of the reactor after the NRU accident in the fall of 1958, it was rapidly deployed. In describing the instrument at the Conference on Neutron Scattering in Solids and Liquids in 1960 in Vienna, [41], Brockhouse said, “The C5 triple-axis crystal spectrometer at the C face of the NRU reactor was designed to be as flexible and generally useful as possible, allowing a wide range of energies, E and E′, and scattering angles, Φ, and crystal angles, Ψ. The resolution was readily changeable.” The neutron flux of all wavelengths at the source, which was 6 m from the spectrometer, was 2 × 10

Arguably, this is the most crucial part of the instrument, since it has to provide accurately moving parts and provide good shielding against the fast neutrons and gamma rays emerging from the beam tube. It was designed by W. McAlpin, who had worked on ship structures on the River Clyde in the UK during the war. The monochromator angle θ

The monochromator and analyzer crystals were mounted on permanently aligned mounts and cut from single-crystal ingots of Al with the [$1\overline{1}0$] direction vertical allowing access to the (111), (002), (220), (113), and (331) monochromator planes. Adjustable collimators were made of Cd-coated steel strips which slid into slots in the collimator boxes. Collimations around ½ to 1° were used at collimators C3 and C4 to define the beam directions and were relaxed at collimator C5. The collimation before the monochromator, C1, C2 is defined by the beam apertures and the distance to the source, and it is of order 1°. A photograph of the spectrometer taken in about 1965 is shown in Figure 19.

Egelstaff’s United Kingdom Atomic Energy group on scattering from neutron moderators. Dr. Stedman had explained to us attempts made in Sweden to observe phonons in NaCl on the initial steep branch of the dispersion relation by moving at constant energy transfer across the curve. Bert brilliantly clued into this and realized that if you could control the angle of scattering and the sample crystal orientation along with the energy transfer, you could do a scan without changing the momentum transfer, hence constant-

**Q**method. The energy versus wavevector dispersion relation for Pb at 100 K is shown in Figure 20; it is far from being a simple sine curve and clearly displays higher-order harmonics. The neutron groups at higher temperatures are broadened but superposed on a strong sloping background, which was ascribed to two subsequent single phonon scattering events in the large crystal as well as multiphonon scattering. After absorption corrections and taking out the population factors and assuming that the cross-section is independent of temperature, the full-widths at half-maximum of the peaks at 425 K are shown in Figure 21.

**q**appears to follow a sine variation, as Figure 21 shows, and 1/γ may be interpreted as the lifetime of the phonon. Its value at the [00ζ] zone boundary is about 30% of the phonon frequency, showing that the lifetime is only about 50% of the period of the wave. The origin of the widths, whether due to electron–phonon or phonon–phonon coupling, remained unknown at that time.

The most marked discontinuity is at $\frac{a}{2\pi}[0.4,0.4,0]$, and this position is in fair agreement with the dimension of the Fermi surface, assuming it to be spherical or as determined by de Haas–van Alphen measurements. The anomaly at $\frac{a}{2\pi}[1.5,1.5,1.5]$ is also expected to be strong but may have contributions from two different pieces of the Fermi surface. Actual discontinuities such as the Kohn anomalies in Pb underline the long-range nature of the electronic origin of the forces and are not sensibly amenable to the interplanar approach.

**Q**method. The majority of measurements were made at 90 K, and measurements at 215 and 296 K showed that the frequencies decreased by a few percentage points, and the phonon widths increased as the temperature approached the melting temperature of 370.6 K. The dispersion relation for Na at 90 K is shown in Figure 22. The Fourier analysis showed that while three terms, corresponding to five shells of neighbors, gave quite a good fit, a more precise fit required n = 5, corresponding to eight shells of neighbors, but with values which were only of order 1% of φ

_{1}. Na is non-superconducting, unlike Pb, and the electron–phonon interaction is very small. Considerable effort was spent to see whether there were any Kohn anomalies in Na where the Fermi surface is nearly spherical and well known. There were no discontinuities in the dispersion relation to within 1% in the locations where the free-electron Fermi surface cuts the dispersion relation in wavevector.

Since measurements are typically made in high-symmetry directions, such as [ζζζ], in general, the force constants derived from these measurements alone are not unique. This effect was also noted in [66] for Ni and also for Si by Dolling [30], where there are sometimes ambiguities in the fits such as non-physical parameters.

^{−}, ions lie on interpenetrating fcc lattices. Kellerman [68] had computed the lattice dynamics for a series of point ions interacting with Coulomb forces and a central repulsive force between first neighbors, which became known as the rigid ion model. This approach neglects the polarizability of the ions and thus cannot explain their dielectric properties. In addition to the neutron measurements and calculations in the rigid ion model, the lattice dynamical theory, which takes account of the polarizability of the ions, known as the shell model, was also presented. Both were compared with experiment in forms with no adjustable parameters. The approach drew on the expertise of Prof. W. Cochran (who had pointed out to Crick and Watson that the X-ray patterns of DNA indicated a helical structure) and who was a visitor from Cambridge UK for a year at Chalk River in the late 1950s.

^{−}ions is much larger than the Na

^{+}ions, leading to being able to neglect the latter. Large single crystals were available, since they were in common use for γ-ray detectors. Unfortunately, the incoherent scattering cross-section for sodium is 1.6 bn, which produced inelastic incoherent scattering, as in V, in the vicinity of the optic modes. In this case, the determinantal equation which gives the phonon frequencies and polarization vectors, has the form

**I**is the unit 6 × 6 matrix. The shell model leads to two further variables corresponding to deformable shells on the two ions. Then, there are forces between the cores, between the shells, and between the core of one ion and the shell of the other. Then, the matrix,

**D**, is 12 × 12. However, the expressions for

**D**contain constants, which are all known from the elastic constants and from the high and low frequency dielectric constants, so the dispersion relation may be calculated with no adjustable parameters in the simple shell model and the rigid ion model.

**Q**technique. The frequencies of the optic modes in NaI at 100 K were established, and the complete dispersion curve is shown in Figure 26 together with the rigid ion and shell model calculations. The rigid ion model tends to overestimate the frequencies, especially near the [001] zone boundary. The TO modes are fairly well captured, but the LO mode is badly overestimated. The simple shell model is a considerable improvement. While not completely correct, particularly at the [111} zone boundary, it certainly captures the basic behavior with no adjustable parameters. One key feature mentioned in ref. [72] was that the LO mode appeared to be weak and quite broad compared with the TO mode. The measurements in KBr also showed anomalous behavior of the LO mode: the widths of the corresponding neutron groups increase strongly with temperature even at 400 K, which is well below the melting temperature of 1003 K, and the LO mode at

**q**= 0 is also broader than the TO mode, suggesting that the lifetime of the LO phonons is reduced. The calculated dispersion relation with the rigid ion and simple shell models are shown in Figure 27.

^{+}ions implies a positively charged shell, which was considered to be unrealistic. It was pointed out in this paper that the shell model was formally equivalent to introducing dipoles in addition to the cores on the ion sites and then considering the force constants between the cores, between the dipoles, and between cores and dipoles.

**q**= 0 are shown in Figure 28 for the LO and TO modes in NaI and KBr. The TO modes have a well-defined frequency but broaden somewhat as the temperature is raised. For the LO modes, the center of gravity of the frequency distribution decreases with temperature but also broadens markedly, especially to the high-frequency side. Roger Cowley remarked that, “At least a substantial part of the anomalous temperature dependence of the shape of the LO modes in alkali halides, as found by Woods et al. in ref. [72], can be explained in terms of phonon–phonon interaction”. For NaI and KBr, there are two and possibly three peaks in the LO response as the temperature increases arising from anharmonicity. Further calculations reported in the comprehensive review of phonons in perfect crystals by Cochran and Cowley [24] shows that the broadening increases as

**q**approaches zero in the [111] direction for KBr.

#### 4.1.4. Lattice Dynamics of Pyrolytic Graphite

**Q**. As a result of the 5± mosaic spread of the sample, the vertical divergence at small offsets from the (002) reflection gives rise to a range of phonon wavevectors, and this tends to give a spurious increased frequency at small wavevectors. The frequency versus wavevector dispersion relation is well fitted by a single sine wave, suggesting that there are longitudinal forces only between nearest planes. The transverse modes appear as broad distributions about 50% lower than the longitudinal frequencies and are in any case somewhat ambiguous.

**q**. The lowest frequency [ζ00] TO branch was measured by neutron inelastic scattering on the C5 triple axis spectrometer at the NRU reactor as a function of temperature between 430 and 90 K and found to be strongly temperature-dependent at small wavevectors. Most of the measurements were made by constant-

**Q**method, but the constant-υ method was used where the branch dips steeply. The ζ = 0 mode obtained with neutrons agreed well with that determined by far infrared measurements. The temperature dependence interpreted on Cochran’s theory [78] should behave similar to υ

In the particular case of SrTiO

_{3}, a particular mode softens. When the quasi-elastic scattering at a particular wavevector increases strongly (as opposed to the frequency of the inelastic scattering decreasing), the mode is referred to as an over-damped mode, and this eventually transforms into a sharp Bragg peak.

**q**) would resemble a body-centered cubic material such as Na, where the zone-boundary in the [00ζ] and [ζζζ] directions is at ζ = 1.0. The presence of ordering in the CsCl structure halves the size of the Brillouin zone to ζ = 0.5, and the range ζ = 0.5 to 1.0 corresponds to optic modes. For a body-centered cubic material, the branches would be continuous at ζ = 0.5, but for the CsCl structure, gaps appear at ζ = 0.5 at about a frequency of about 4.5 Thz in β-brass. Gaps in the branches also appear at this frequency at [0.17, 0.17, 0.17] and at [0.22, 0.22, 0], where the LA and LO modes would otherwise cross in the reduced zone scheme for the body-centered cubic structure. In these cases, there is an absence of vibrations where these modes of the same symmetry cross and the eigenvectors are zero. There is also a sharp dip at this frequency in the phonon frequency distribution g(υ) for which Gilat and Dolling [89] had developed an accurate numerical method of calculating

The dispersion relations were generally similar, except for the absence of certain degeneracies, to the semiconductors Ge [27] and Si [30] such as the splitting of the LA and LO modes at [001], and the results were also interpreted in terms of the shell model. The model parameters required second-nearest neighbor short-range interactions, without which quite poor descriptions were obtained and lead to a small positive charge of about 0.04e on the Ga ion.

#### 4.1.9. Crystal Dynamics of UO_{2}

_{2}was the material of choice for the fuel elements in the CANDU reactor system developed at Chalk River in the decades between the late 1940s and the 1960s and was of great interest to Atomic Energy of Canada. The lattice vibrations in UO

_{2}, which has the calcium fluorite structure, were measured by Dolling, Cowley, and Woods [58] by triple-axis crystal spectrometry and interpreted by them in terms of the shell model, since it is an ionic material. Thus began a fascinating story which has only been clarified in the last few years, sixty years after it began. Since there are three atoms in the primitive unit cell, there are nine branches of the dispersion relation, three acoustic modes, and six optic modes. The measurements were made at 296 K on a crystal of about 3 cm

^{3}volume in the [00ζ], [ζζ0], and [ζζζ] directions. Structure factor calculations based on the rigid ion model were used to find the locations in

**Q**-space where the various branches are best observed. As a result of the low intensity of the optic modes around 18 THz, these were measured with a poor (5°) mosaic spread pyrolytic graphite analyzer with a Be filter in front of the detector to pass only 4 Å neutrons. The dispersion relations are shown in Figure 35. Dashed curves represent the rigid ion model, and solid curves represent the results of a shell model for which the ionic charge was allowed to vary. The latter model gave an accurate fit to the data, although the authors cautioned that the values of the parameters should not be taken as having any particular significance. The density of phonon states, g(υ), was calculated, and from this, the lattice specific heat up to 150 K for comparison with the experimental results, which include both lattice and magnetic contributions, since UO

_{2}is antiferromagnetic below 30 K A surprising feature of the comparison is that the magnetic-specific heat appears to persist far above the Néel temperature, indicating a strong short-range magnetic order or other contributions to the specific heat.

#### 4.1.10. Measurements of the Moderator Properties of Materials

_{2}, the fuel of choice for most reactor systems. Since the initial energy of neutrons released on fission is about 2 MeV and the final thermal energy is about 25 meV, most of the moderating collisions (about 30 for light water) are of the “billiard ball” variety, and only the final few collisions depend on collective properties such as the phonon spectrum. The approach to calculating the moderating properties is eventually to cast the problem into the average single nucleus response with an effective cross-section and effective mass dependent on the chemical formula. The interference effects due to the coherent scattering in the material are treated later as a perturbation. The case of UO

_{2}is considered here because both the polycrystal and single-crystal measurements were made at Chalk River. After the end of the Canada–United Kingdom collaboration in the late 1960s, the four-rotor spectrometer was not used for further experiments, as it required a great deal of technical effort and was rather less robust than the C5 triple-axis crystal spectrometer.

^{coh}(Q,ω), are subsequently treated as corrections, which may be large if the cross-section is principally coherent as for Be. A new function S(α, β) called the Scattering Law was introduced [94,95] with variables related to Q and ω by

^{2}, an energy, rather than Q. Considering the self-term in UO

_{2}with contributions from both U and O, the cross-section was written as

^{−β}

^{/2}was introduced to ensure that the principle of detailed balance is obeyed [94]. Since the scattering cross-section for U is about twice that for O, the last term in brackets in Equation (43) was approximated by ${\sigma}_{U}{S}_{U{O}_{2}}^{inc}$, where the response of U and O are bundled together and treated as the measured quantity. An example of the quantity $\frac{{S}_{U{O}_{2}}^{inc}(\alpha ,\beta )}{\alpha}$ for polycrystalline UO

_{2}at 296 K as a function of α is shown [93] in Figure 36 for three values of β. The rise at low α has contributions from coherent interference processes and multiple scattering, which mask the single nucleus response at small α. The dashed straight lines are fit to the part of the function for α > 5 corresponding to high Q (about 7 Ǻ

^{−1}), so the analysis removes the coherent scattering by extrapolating the single particle effects, which are expected at large α, to α = 0. The Fourier transform of the velocity correlation function p(β) is related to this extrapolated value [94,95] by

_{2}is shown in Figure 37 and is compared with g(υ) determined from the phonon dispersion curves for UO

_{2}[58]. The peak at β ≈ 0.5, 150 K, 3 Thz corresponds to the lower peak in g(υ) and the broader peak at β ≈ 2, 600 K matches the center of the broad distribution in g(ν) centered on 13 THz in g(υ), and the cut-off location is reasonable. The resolution of p(β) is good enough to proceed to the next stage of calculating S(α, β) over a wide range of α and β, as described by Egelstaff and Schofield [94,95]. However, from the point of view of getting at the lattice dynamics of UO

_{2}, these experiments are not very revealing.

^{4}at Chalk River was carried out by Henshaw and Woods [100] using a triple-axis spectrometer set up at the thermal column of the NRU reactor. The experiments were carried out with incident neutrons of wavelength 4.039 Å (5.01 meV) from the (111) planes of an Al single crystal and the (111) planes of a Pb single crystal as analyzer. The incident beam was filtered through Be and quartz single crystals. Measurements were made over a wavevector range from 0.27 to 2.68 Å

^{−1}and up to a maximum energy of 1.73 meV. The energy versus wavevector dispersion relation at 1.12 K is shown in Figure 40. At wavevectors below 0.6 Å

^{−1}and 0.75 meV, and then rises again. The results agreed quantitatively with those of Yarnell et al. [101] but extended the range of measurements to much higher energies and wavevectors. In particular, it was shown that the phonon–roton curve begins to flatten off in energy at the highest wavevectors well below the energy for free particles in the region, and its intensity decreases rapidly.

^{−1}), and then decreases so as to be at least ×12 times less than the value at the roton minimum by Q = 2.68 Å

^{−1}. It was realized that the cross-section for the phonon–roton peak was far smaller than the cross-section integrated over energy, S(Q), measured in ref. [39] in 1955 for He at this temperature and wavevector. This was consistent with the hypothesis that most of the intensity is associated with multiphonon scattering. That is, the weight in the excitation spectrum shifts from the single particle excitations to multiple processes, which resemble the scattering from non-interacting He atoms. This prompted later detailed measurements of this inelastic multiphonon scattering.

^{−1}, the energy of the excitation increases rapidly with temperature below the λ-point, resembling an order parameter variation, for example, a Brillouin curve. Above the λ-point, the energy is practically constant with a value of 0.43 meV (5.2 K), as shown in Figure 42. The results confirmed that the excitations and their interactions are a strong function of temperature below the λ-point and therefore are a strong function of the superfluid fraction. On the other hand, the widths at the roton minimum above the λ-point are consistent with a gas of free He particles.

Woods [104] and found to be independent of temperature, which disproved the prediction. However, the widths of the phonon peaks do increase with temperature above the λ-point, and a sharp peak is not observed at 4.2 K. The importance of these observations is discussed below.

^{−1}are displayed in Figure 43. The lower solid line shows the phonon–roton part. The mean position of the multiphonon part and the position in energy at the half-heights of the multiphonon distribution are also shown. While the existence of a well-defined phonon–roton mode at higher wavevectors in the roton region arises from the Bose–Einstein condensation at low temperatures, it was the width of the multiphonon part that gave the first estimate of the fraction, n

_{0}, of helium atoms in the zero-momentum state,

**k**= 0. Beyond Q = 3.5 Å

^{−1}, only S

_{11}(Q, ω) is non-zero, and its mean energy is approximately that expected for free helium atoms recoiling after being struck by a neutron, namely $\frac{{\u0127}^{2}{Q}^{2}}{2M}$, where M is the mass of a helium atom. The phonon–roton curve does not connect with the free-atom recoil curve but lies well below it, and it is the center of the broad distribution that merges with the free atom scattering. The integration over energy of S(Q, ω), the zeroth moment including both the Z(Q) and S

_{11}(Q, ω) terms, was shown to be equal, to within the experimental uncertainty, to S(Q) as measured by X-rays, which certainly integrates over the whole energy spectrum. That is, all the inelastic neutron scattering is accounted for at 1.1 K. Measurements at 4.2 K, above the superfluid transition temperature T

_{λ}, showed that the linear phonon part for Q less that 0.3 Å

^{−1}still existed and that the rest of the phonon–roton curve was absent, while the broad multiphonon part persisted. A crucial observation was that the full-width at half-height of the broad peak, corrected for experimental resolution, was systematically larger at 4.2 K than at 1.1 K, as shown in Figure 44. The oscillations in the width were ascribed to coherent effects. It was also found that the increase in width of S

_{11}(Q, ω) occurs very close to T

_{λ}. The results suggested to Cowley and Woods that there is an increase in the kinetic energy of the helium atoms above T

_{λ}, which was reasonably ascribed to the depletion of the zero-momentum state and could be used to give an estimate of n

_{0}. The results were analyzed with the wave functions and distribution of particle states for helium proposed by MacMillan [107] and for different integrated intensities and widths of a Lorentzian lineshape describing the superfluid state, and the best match with experiment gave an estimate of n

_{0}= (17 ± 10)%. This was the first direct numerical evidence for the existence of the Bose–Einstein condensation in liquid helium below the lambda point and was an important step forward in the field of quantum liquids.

#### 4.3. Magnetism

#### 4.3.1. The Magnetic Structure of Mn_{3}ZnC

_{3}ZnC was clarified by Brockhouse and Myers in a paper [108] describing neutron diffraction measurements at temperatures above and below the Curie temperature of 392 K. The saturation magnetization of Mn

_{3}ZnC initially follows a Brillouin curve down to 230 K but then shows a slight arrest at about 1.3 μ

_{B}and then decreases again. Low-temperature X-ray measurements showed that the cubic perovskite structure deforms to a tetragonal structure at 233 K. Neutron diffraction measurements at 433 K confirmed the non-magnetic perovskite structure and revealed paramagnetic scattering corresponding to the observed Curie–Weiss law. Measurements at 295 K indicated magnetic contributions to the intensity in {100} and {200} peaks. At 100 K, the {100} peak continues to increase, but additional peaks appear at reciprocal lattice positions such as {½½½}, and these follow a second Brillouin curve below 230 K.

_{B}. Between 392 and 231 K, these are aligned ferromagnetically and would correspond to an average Mn moment of 1.66 μ

_{B}at 0 K. If the initial Brillouin curve above 392 K is extrapolated to zero, an average moment of this magnitude is obtained. Below the anomaly around 231 K, the moments on the 3 μ

_{B}sites remain ferromagnetically ordered, but half the moments on the 2 μ

_{B}sites remain parallel to the initial direction, but half align antiparallel—that is, antiferromagnetically—and so do not contribute to the net magnetization at 0 °K. In this case, the net ferromagnetic moment per Mn atom is 1 μ

_{B}, as measured by the saturation magnetization. The model also accounted for the magnetic structure factors. Interestingly, the magnetic anomaly does not occur in the ferromagnetic isomorphous structure Mn

_{3}AlC, where the Al would contribute an extra electron to the conduction band. It was noted that Kasper and Roberts [109] also found it necessary to describe the antiferromagnetic state of α-Mn, with three kinds of Mn sites, one with zero moment.

#### 4.3.2. Spin Waves in Metallic Co

**Q**method with a steep dispersion relation gives very broad peaks, so the constant energy transfer approach was used, varying

**Q**in a step-wise fashion, keeping the energy transfer constant.

^{3}) of a Co

_{0.92}Fe

_{0.08}alloy, which had been grown as a polarizer to reflect neutrons of one spin direction in a magnetic field. Fe has to be added to Co to stabilize the face-centered cubic structure. Aluminium crystals were used as monochromator and analyzer, and the measurements were made in the [ζζζ] direction around the [111] reciprocal lattice point. The decrease of the spin-wave intensity in a vertical applied magnetic field sufficient to saturate the crystal proved the magnetic nature of the excitations. Interestingly, the phonon intensity increased in the field due to additional magnetic coherent terms adding to the nuclear scattering. The process of observing phonons through the magnetic coherent cross-section is called magnetovibrational scattering.

#### 4.3.3. Crystal-Field Excitations

_{3}Fe

_{5}O

_{12}, is a ferrimagnet with a Curie point around 550 K. The Yb

^{3+}ions reside on effectively two inequivalent sites on the C-sublattice surrounded by distorted cubes of O

^{2−}ions. The ground state doublet is separated from the first excited quartet by about 70 meV. There is strong exchange coupling between the Fe

^{3+}ions, while the coupling between Yb

^{3+}ions is weak. The ground state doublet is split by the molecular field provided by the Fe

^{3+}ions. Far infrared measurements by Sievers and Tinkham [114] revealed peaks corresponding to three modes of excitation at 1.7, 2.9, and 3.3 meV at

**q**= 0. The first measurements of excitations associated with crystal-field splitting of rare-earth ions by neutron inelastic scattering were made by Watanabe and Brockhouse [115]. The measurements were made in neutron energy gain from the populated first excited state with the rotating crystal spectrometer at the NRX reactor on a polycrystalline sample, and only one peak was observed at 3 meV at 80 K. This corresponded to the mean position of the peak observed in infrared absorption. Low-temperature specific-heat measurements [116] on Yb

_{3}Fe

_{5}O

_{12}were consistent with the 3 meV excitation. However, the specific heat measurements below 4.2 K also required the contribution from the 1.7 meV level. This mode, identified in [114] at

**Q**= 0 as an “exchange mode”, would have had a strong wavevector dependence and probably corresponds to the lowest spin-wave mode, which does not go to zero because of the crystal-field anisotropy of the system. However, it would not have been observed as a sharp peak in a polycrystalline sample because of the averaging over wavevector.

_{2}O

_{3,}Er

_{3,}Tb

_{2}O

_{3}were reported by Brockhouse et al. [117] using the Chalk River rotating crystal spectrometer. Unfortunately, in these oxides, there are two distinct magnetic sites, each with low symmetry, so there are many possible peaks visible especially at temperatures of order of the multiplet splittings. Several peaks were observed, but it was not possible to assign these to particular transitions and so permit progress in understanding the results in terms of crystal fields. The problem is even daunting with single-crystal samples in these insulating rare-earth oxides. Much greater progress was achieved at Chalk River 15 years later in experiments on metallic rare-earth compounds such as TbSb, where the crystal fields are cubic.

#### 4.3.4. Spin Waves in Magnetite

**Q**method and the triple-axis crystal spectrometer, the complete spin-wave dispersion relation for the lowest, acoustic, mode of magnetite, Fe

_{3}O

_{4}, was measured to the [00ζ] zone boundary by Brockhouse and Watanabe [79] and shown in Figure 46. The spin-wave energy at ζ = 1.0 was 75 ± 2 meV, and the energy of the optic mode at

**q**= 0 was 58 ± 2 meV. The experiment is difficult because of the high spin-wave energies requiring E to be large, but the flux of neutrons with high energies is limited in a thermal reactor spectrum. In addition,

**Q**has to be small to keep the magnetic form factor large. In order to check that the inelastic peaks were actually spin waves, a vertical magnetic field was applied in the [$10\overline{1}$] direction sufficient to align the magnetic domains, and the peak intensities decreased as required. Constant-υ scans were made in addition to the constant-

**Q**scans. The spin-wave dispersion was found to be independent, to within the uncertainty of the measurements, of the direction of

**q.**The dispersion relation was analyzed in terms of the exchange model of Kaplan [118], and the antiferromagnetic exchange between Fe moments on the A and B sites was found to be J

_{AB}= 2.3 ± 0.2 meV. The interaction between Fe moments on B sites was determined to be much smaller and probably ferromagnetic. The discrepancy noted previously between the value of the low-temperature spin-wave specific heat as measured and that calculated from J

_{AB}is very likely to be a systematic error in the specific-heat measurements. The thermal conductivity of Fe

_{3}O

_{4}is about 200 times smaller than Ni for example. Typically, heat is applied for a short time, say 60 s, and the corresponding temperature increase is noted on a nearby thermometer. However, with a low thermal conductivity, the temperature only increases in that part of the sample closest to the heater, so that the thermometer would then give an incorrect reading of the average temperature rise and hence an incorrect specific heat. The present author had made low-temperature specific-heat measurements of polycrystalline magnetite in the early sixties and had not been aware of the consequences of a low thermal conductivity. Neutrons never lie!

#### 4.3.5. Spin Waves in UO_{2}

_{2}at 9 K. Peaks were observed in the magnetic Brillouin zones enclosing the [001] and [110] magnetic reciprocal lattice points, corresponding to excitations propagating in the AF spin structure as well as phonons. However, the phonon frequencies were strongly modified in the regions near the magnetic excitations, indicating a strong coupling between the magnons and the phonons. This was the first magnon–phonon interaction ever seen at a finite wavevector. Measurements of the magnetic form factor for U

^{4+}suggest that the electronic configuration of the 5f electrons is (5f

^{2}). In the L–S coupling approximation, the ground state is

^{3}H

_{4}, which is further split by the octahedral crystalline–electric field of the O

^{2−}ions. As a result of the orbital angular momentum, the distribution of 5f electrons is no longer spherical but extended in lobes between the O

^{2−}ions. The lowest level in the crystal field could have been a ${\mathsf{\Gamma}}_{1}$ singlet or a ${{\mathsf{\Gamma}}^{\prime}}_{25}$ triplet, but the evidence of the magnon branches and the magnon–phonon interaction confirms that it is the triplet. A molecular field in the antiferromagnetic state splits this into three levels so the magnetic excitations would correspond to transitions between the ground state and the two excited states, since there are matrix elements of (L + 2S) connecting these states. The transverse phonon in the [00ζ] direction modulates the crystal field, leading to a coupling between the magnon and the phonon where they would otherwise cross.

**q**, where the corresponding Brillouin zones cut the ($1\overline{1}0$) plane. The major barrier to complete understanding was that there appear to be three branches of magnetic excitation, not two as expected on the basis of the triplet ground state split by the molecular field. One other consequence of the magnon–phonon interaction is that, for example, the Δ

_{5}transverse phonon is seen at [0 0 1.7] only by virtue of the admixture of the magnon eigenvectors into its description. The phonon eigenvectors lie perpendicular to

**Q**, so the purely phonon contribution is zero at this location. The theory for the magnetic excitations including orbital angular momentum was developed by Cowley and Dolling [120], who also derived the theory of the magnon–phonon interaction from first principles. While the theory of the magnetic excitations included all the interactions presumed to exist at the time, it was recognized as not fully satisfactory. A more complete story has taken over half a century to resolve [121], and a very recent paper in a volume dedicated to the contributions of Roger Cowley [122] summarizes the now-known facts. There are quadrupole moments on the U

^{4+}ions, and there are also quadrupolar transitions between the three states in the molecular field. These too can interact with the phonons and magnons, and this leads to the three apparently magnetic peaks seen in the original 9 K measurements.

## 5. Epilogue

**Q**scans and deciding the scans for the day. The day’s discoveries or problems were discussed at coffee time, which brought the whole group of scientists and technicians together every day. Beam time was considered sacred, and as soon as one experiment finished, the next one was set up and started. Regular buses to Deep River, after the nominal working day was over, were invariably full of scientists.

^{4}was carried out as summarized by H. Glyde in his contribution to the commemorative volume for Roger Cowley [123]. The most accurate estimate of the superfluid fraction, n

_{0}= (7.25 ± 0.25)%, is within the error band originally estimated at Chalk River. Interestingly, at sufficiently high wavevectors, for example at Q = 28.5 Å

^{−1}as measured with spallation sources, the difference in S(Q, ω) between the superfluid and the normal states can be observed directly.

_{2}, KCoF

_{3}[124], and RbCoF

_{3}. Here, the major perturbation of the free ion in a cubic compound is the crystalline–electric field with the spin–orbit coupling and exchange interactions determining the energy levels and wave functions of the lowest states. In general, excitations from the ground state to several excited states are allowed, and this leads to several branches of the spin-wave spectrum. Extensive investigations into the way in which excitations are altered in the presence of defect ions were mounted. For example, the Co

^{2+}ion in MnF

_{2}leads to a mode localized on the Co

^{2+}site, since it lies above the MnF

_{2}spin-wave band. On the other hand, Zn

^{2+}in MnF

_{2}leads to a resonant perturbation of the host spin waves. The work was extended to measurements and theoretical descriptions of concentrated alloys and clusters [125]. Measurements began on the spin waves in the rare-earth metals Ho [126] and Er, which have respectively incommensurate spiral and conical magnetic structures at low temperatures.

_{2}, and PrAl

_{2}followed. In the rare-earth compounds, the crystal field and long-range exchange interactions determine the low-lying level energy levels and wave functions, and several branches of the spin-wave spectrum are seen. In 1986, measurements on the spin-1 linear chain antiferromagnet CsNiCl

_{3}[128] provided the first experimental evidence for the Haldane Gap [129] for which Haldane later shared the Nobel Prize. The success in the interpretation of the rare-earth compounds led to work on antiferromagnetic UN [130] and ferromagnetic US and USe, which are the respective pnictides and chalcogenides with the smallest U–U separations, and whose ionic state is unknown. The magnetic excitations in these cases are not conventional spin waves with a well-defined energy at a given wavevector

**q**but are always broadened in energy, even at small

**q**. A quantitative theory for these excitations still does not exist.

_{7}and high-temperature superconductors were investigated. Many remarkable applications of neutron diffraction to critical components for industry worldwide were carried out, including work on stresses in highly active welds, assay of unknown radioactive materials within historic encapsulation, and also the solidification of alloys. The cumulative income from ANDI fee-for-service research was six million Canadian dollars. An account of the CNBC from 1997 to 2017 was given by Root and Banks [132] including the rather troubling interactions between AECL, NRC, NSERC, and the Department of Industry (NRCAN) over the possibilities for a neutron source for pure and applied research to replace the NRU reactor. A synopsis of the first decade of neutron scattering at Chalk River was given in ref. [133]. Statistical data on the performance of the neutron group over the years are to be found in ref. [134]. This recorded that the number of papers describing research with neutrons at Chalk River between 1949 and 1965 was 131, between 1966 and 1980 it was 330, between 1980 and 2000 it was 857, and between 2000 and 2017 it was 745 for a total of 2081 scientific papers over the 68 years of existence of the neutron group.

## 6. The Scientists

_{3}. At the end of his student days in 1964, he married his wife, Sheila, and set off on the “Empress of Canada” to Montreal, en route to Chalk River as a member of staff of Atomic Energy of Canada. Roger had an extraordinarily productive career at Chalk River working on the theory of anharmonicity, magnetic excitations in systems with spin and orbital moments, doped magnetic systems to find local and resonant magnetic excitations, and with Dave Woods on excitations in normal and superfluid helium. Roger and Sheila made many friends in Deep River, and their two children were born there.

_{2}. With R.A. Cowley, he measured the spin-wave excitations in UO

_{2}and discovered the magnon–phonon interaction and gave a convincing explanation of its origin. He was instrumental in developing high-quality squeezed germanium and silicon monochromators for triple-axis spectrometry. He authored 120 research papers and five book chapters. He strongly supported research into industrial applications of neutron scattering, which was a field he helped pioneer in the early 1980s.

He was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 1982 for his contributions to neutron scattering. He loved music, literature, travel, tennis, and badminton, and he took great pride in his family and their history in Newfoundland. Dave Woods retired in 1989 and died in 2019.

**Figure 1.**The main floor of the National Research Experimental (NRX) reactor at the Chalk River Laboratory about 1950. The powder spectrometer constructed by Donald Hurst and colleagues is visible near the center of the photograph. Most of the other equipment is concerned with nuclear physics or with physics of the neutron itself. For reasons of restricted space around the reactor, each heavily shielded apparatus is located at the end of a long tube. This figure is taken from Figure 1 of ref. [2] and reproduced by courtesy of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. Copyright by the American Physical Society.

**Figure 2.**The first crude version of the triple-axis spectrometer. Monoenergetic neutrons are selected by the large single-crystal monochromator (X

_{1}) and impinge on the specimen (S), which is located on a table whose orientation (ψ) with respect to the incident beam can be selected. This table can be moved along the incident beam as desired. The analyzing spectrometer, which employs crystal X

_{2}, is a diffractometer of especially large aperture that can be translated as a unit; the angle, Φ, through which the examined neutrons are scattered is determined by triangulation. This figure is taken from Figure 3 of ref. [2] and modified to label the collimators C

**Figure 3.**The transmission through cadmium for an aluminum scatterer. The inset shows the theoretical energy distribution of initially monoenergetic incident neutrons, 350 meV, after scattering from a gas which gives a Gaussian, and an Einstein crystal with discrete lines separated by kθ

_{D}= 25.9 meV. In the main diagram, the experimental points are plotted together with the straight line transmission corresponding to no inelastic scattering and the energy distribution produced by inelastic scattering from the Einstein model.

**Figure 4.**Typical energy distributions of neutrons inelastically scattered by an aluminum single crystal with the energy resolutions indicated by triangles. The count rate is plotted against the scattered energy in eV and the angular phonon frequency in 10

**Figure 6.**Schematic drawing of the filter-chopper spectrometer at Chalk River. The incident neutron beam passes alternatively through cold Be or cold Be and Pb filters. The scattering angle, Φ, at the sample is 90° and the scattered energy is determined in time of flight over a path of 4.5 m with a Fermi chopper rotating at 7200 rpm. The neutrons are counted in well-shielded BF

_{3}counters. The inset shows the Maxwellian spectrum and the position of the Pb and Be filter Bragg cut-offs. This figure is taken from Figure 3 of ref. [19]. Copyright by the American Physical Society.

**Figure 7.**The phonon dispersion relations in the [ζ00] and [ζζζ] directions for germanium at room temperature. The legend at the top of the diagram indicates the polarization and character of the vibrations. The signs indicate neutron energy loss (−) or gain (+). The heavy lines near (

**Figure 8.**The phonon dispersion relations in silicon for the [ζ00], [0ζζ], and [ζζζ] directions at 296 K. The curves are calculated from shell model IIC. The vertical dashed line at ζ = 0.75 in the [0ζζ] direction marks the position of the zone boundary. Open circles represent type I [0ζζ] modes, open triangles represent longitudinal modes, and solid points have undetermined polarization. This figure is taken from Figure 1 of ref. [30] by courtesy of the International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA).

**Figure 9.**The Be-Pb difference patterns as measured with the filter difference spectrometer for vanadium at 300 °K and at 105 °K. The region of the spectrum around 1.2 Å corresponds to multiphonon scattering. Elastic scattering from the previous frame in time of flight is seen around 3.6 Å.

**Figure 10.**The vibrational spectrum, g(ν), of vanadium with the instrumental energy resolution shown as Gaussian curves. The full line is drawn through the combined histograms. The light dashed curve shows a possible spectrum with the resolution removed. The heavy dashed line at low frequencies shows part of the Debye spectrum for a Debye temperature θ

**Figure 11.**The excitation curve in superfluid He

**Figure 12.**The atomic distribution function 4πrρ(r) for liquid neon at 26 K. The arrow at 3.13 Å represents the measured separation between two atoms in the solid at 4.2 °K. The nearest distance of approach of two atoms in the liquid is 2.45 Å, while the number of neighbors around each atom is about 8.8. The oscillations below 2 Å are spurious and have their origin in the limited wavevector range, Q, of the experiments. This figure is taken from Figure 5 of ref. [45].

_{A}, of the analyzing spectrometer, the scattered neutron wavelength, and its energy. The resolution function as measured with vanadium is shown. The results indicate the separation of the quasi-elastic scattering from the inelastic scattering. The latter is consistent with the scattering from a gas of H

The filled circles are obtained from patterns for which there is a fairly clear separation of “nearly-elastic “and inelastic” components and the open circles where the curves had to be fitted. The upper solid curve represents a Debye-Waller factor with <u>, the average amplitude of oscillation, of about 0.26 Å applicable to ice at room temperature while the lower solid curve is a fit of a Debye-Waller factor to the measurements for which <u> is about 0.4 Å. The shaded region is taken from a separate experiment where only the nearly elastic scattering was measured. This figure is taken from Figure 13 of ref. [46] courtesy of Nuovo Cimento.

_{4}, at room temperature propagating in the [00ζ] direction. The straight line corresponds to a velocity of greater than 10

^{4}ms

^{−1}, which is considerably greater than the mean velocity of sound for magnetite, and therefore, the results do not correspond to a phonon dispersion relation. The parabolic curve corresponds to the expected dispersion relation, E = Dq

^{2}, for spin waves at small wavevectors. The coefficient D, the spin wave stiffness, leads to estimates of the exchange interaction J
