Spin fluctuations are widely believed to play an important role as one of the most possible mechanisms for unconventional high-temperature superconductors. Here, the spin fluctuation in LaFePO is found at high energies such as 30-50 meV with comparable intensity to an optimally doped LaFeAs(O,F).

Differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffraction, and quasi-elastic neutron scattering (QENS) measurements of aqueous glycine solutions confined in mesoporous silica (MCM-41) were performed at different glycine concentrations, pH, and loading ratio (= mass of glycine solution / mass of dry MCM-41) in the temperature range from 305 to 180 K to discuss the confinement effect on the thermal behavior, the structure, and the dynamic properties of the solutions.

Dynamics of a fluoromica (ME100) cation exchanged for dioctadecyl dimethyl ammonium ion (DODA)/ polypropylene composite was analyzed by quasi elastic neutron scattering (QENS), besides XRD and DSC. The QENS spectra for the DODA-ME100 at low Q=2.75 nm were not changed even at temperature higher than 445 K, the melting point of DODA. The results suggested the long range ( 2 nm) molecular motions in interlayer space are restricted due to the rigid silicate layers and the strong electrostatic interaction between DODA and the ME100. Elastic intensity scan results suggested that a little amount of motion of the polymer chains in the composite was also restricted in the molten state at 445 K. The QENS is expected to be one of the useful tools for studying the composite materials.

In this study, we investigate the process of a polystyrene thin film using inelastic neutron scattering (INS), dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (DRS), and thermal expansion spectroscopy (TES). The DRS and TES measurements exhibited a decrease in glass transition temperature () with film thickness. On the other hand, an increase in was observed in INS studies. In order to interpret this contradiction, we investigated the temperature dependence of the peak frequency () of the process probed by DRS and TES. The experiments revealed an increase in the peak frequency () with decreasing film thickness in the frequency region. This observation is consistent with the observed decrease in with thickness. The discrepancy between INS and DRS or TES descriptions of the process is likely to be attributed to a decrease in the apparent activation energy with film thickness and reduced mobility, due to the impenetrable wall effect.

The vibrational states of hydrogen atoms in bulk and nanocrystalline palladium were examined in a wide energy region meV using neutron spectroscopy. In bulk PdH, the vibrational excitations of H atoms were roughly reproduced by the quantum harmonic oscillator (QHO) model. In PdH nanocrystals with a diameter of 8 nm, however, additional vibrational excitations were found at energies above 80 meV. The energies and intensities of the additional states were not explained by QHO but reasonably described as vibrations in a highly anharmonic trumpet-like potential. The additional excitations are attributed to the vibrations of H atoms at tetrahedral sites in the subsurface region stabilized by surface effects. This is an experimental work which clearly detects hydrogen vibration metal nanoparticles.

The compression behaviour of deuterated ice VII and VIII was investigated by high pressure neutron scattering in the pressure range 2-13.7 GPa between 93 K and 300 K. We establish equations-of-state which contain accurate values for the bulk moduli B, their pressure derivatives B', as well as the ambient pressure volumina V. These equations-of-state hold over a large part of the stability domain of ice VII, by comparison with available X-ray data, and to at least 13 GPa for ice VIII. They are indistinguishable at low pressures, but beyond 7 GPa and at low temperatures ice VIII appears to become stiffer than expected. This might be related to an anomalous phonon hardening observed previously in ice VIII in this range [D.D. Klug et al., Physical Review B, 70, 144113 (2004)].
