Background the incoherent scattering cross section of H Neutrons and QENS Experiment Design Connection to Molecular Dynamics Simulations The Elastic Incoherent Structure Factor (EISF) The Role of Instrumentation Restricted Diffusion Example Tethered Molecules References and Summary 2 National School on Neutron & X-ray Scattering - August 2017 Incoherent and Coherent Scattering Origin incoherent scattering arises when there is a random variability in the scattering lengths of atoms in your sample can arise from the presence of different isotopes or from isotopes with non-zero nuclear spin combined with variation in the relative orientation of the neutron spin with the nuclear spin of the scattering center Coherent scattering gives information on spatial correlations and collective motion. Elastic: Where are the atoms? What are the shape of objects? Inelastic: What is the excitation spectrum in crystalline materials e.g. phonons?
Incoherent scattering gives information on single-particles. Elastic: Debye-Waller factor, # H-atoms in sample, Elastic Incoherent Structure Factor geometry of diffusive motion (continuous, jump, rotations) Inelastic: diffusive dynamics, diffusion coefficients. Good basic discussion: Methods of x-ray and neutron scattering in polymer science, R.-J. Roe, Oxford University Press. (available) Theory of Thermal Neutron Scattering, W. Marshall and S. W. Lovesey, Oxford University Press (1971). (out of print) Neutron Properties H is our friend! Isotopic sensitivity of H H (nuclear spin ) has a large incoherent neutron scattering cross-section H and D have opposite signed scattering lengths D has a much smaller cross section The signal from samples with H are often dominated by the incoherent scattering from H The Q and w ranges probed in QENS experiments is well-suited to the self part of the dynamic structure factor

The Elastic Incoherent Structure Factor (EISF) A particle (H-atom) moves out of volume defined by 2/Q in a time shorter than set by the reciprocal of the instrument sensitivity, dw (meV) gives rise to quasielastic broadening. The EISF is essentially the probability that a particle can be found in the same volume of space at some subsequent time and so depends on the size of the box (2/Q).

Time scales set by the width of instrument energy resolution, typically at least 0.1 meV (fwhm) but higher resolution -> longer times/slower motion Energy transfers ~ 2 meV (or less) High resolution requirements emphasizes use of cold neutrons (but long limits Q) Incident neutron wavelengths typically 4 to 12 (5.1 meV to 0.6 meV) Why a variety of instruments? (Resolutions vary from 1 meV to 100 meV) Energy resolution depends on knowing both the incident and scattered neutron energies Terms in the resolution add in quadrature typically primary spectrometer (before sample), secondary spectrometer (after the sample) Improvement in each resolution term cost linearly in neutron flux (ideally) Optimized instrument has primary and secondary spectrometer contributions approximately equal Factor of 2 gain in resolution costs at a minimum a factor of 4 in flux 14 National School on Neutron & X-ray Scattering - August 2017 Role of Instrumentation
