Diffuse neutron scattering covers a wide range of phenomena related to short range nuclear and magnetic orderings. Although it is “a priori” simple to measure, the underlying physics is often quite complex. Extracting useful and reliable information requires careful corrections and calibrations, and appropriate models of analysis, specifics for each physical case. This paper yields a partial and subjective glance on this specific subject, showing studies about chemical orderings in binary alloys and magnetic correlations in frustrated “spin ices” as examples.
