Workshop starts on Monday 14.2. 9 a.m. and finishes on Tuesday 6 p.m.

This is a specialized workshop with detailed explanation of the new option in Jana2006 for refinement of magnetic structures from neutron powder or single crystal data. Jana2006 includes tools for determination of magnetic symmetry from the symmetry of diffraction pattern as well as tools for representative analysis. Finally direct relationship between magnetic space or superspace group and corresponding representation can be discovered and used in refinement. A publication about the underlying theory has been published in Acta Cryst.2010,A66,449-655

Related topic is combination of data in Jana2006 because a magnetic structure based on powder neutron data can be refined together with nuclear structure based on more precice x-ray data. Another related topic concerns commensurate refinement becase magnetic q-vector is usually commensurate.

Lecturers for this workshop: Vaclav Petricek, Juan Manuel Perez-Mato (Bilbao), Ondrej Sipr (Prague) and Michal Dusek.

Each participant should bring a laptop with operating system Windows2000/XP/Vista. Installation of all necessary software will be done at the beginning of the workshop. Wireless internet connection including Eduroam is available at the lecture room. Limited number of computers can be provided to people without laptop (please inform us before the workshop that it would be needed)
