X-ray radiation interacts directly with both the spin and orbital parts of the magnetization density in solids. However, this interaction is weak, so that for many years this type of study was a curiosity. The advent of high-intensity synchrontrons, in which the photon energy can be tuned to absorption edges, and thus enhance the magnetic interaction, has made X-ray scattering a new technique in the study of magnetism. Far from competing with neutrons, this technique is truly complementary, and investigates details of the magnetism that are difficult or impossible with neutrons.
