Abstract

Frustrated magnetic materials - in which the lattice occupied by spins prevents all their interactions from being satisfiedsimultaneously - can host exotic states of matter that are both disordered and strongly correlated, such as spin ices andquantum spin liquids. The magnetic diffuse scattering measured in neutron-scattering experiments is highly sensitive tosuch states, but data analysis is often challenging, especially when only powder samples are available. In my talk, I willdiscuss the information content of powder neutron-scattering data for frustrated magnets. In particular, I will address howsuch data can be converted into a magnetic-structure model without advance knowledge of the underlying magneticinteractions, using the atomistic method of reverse Monte Carlo refinement
