Since the 1980s it has been possible to probe crystallized matter, thanks to X-ray or neutron scattering techniques, to obtain an accurate charge density or spin distribution at the atomic scale. Despite the description of the same physical quantity (electron density) and tremendous development of sources, detectors, data treatment software etc., these(More)
New crystallographic tools were developed to access a more precise description of the spin-dependent electron density of magnetic crystals. The method combines experimental information coming from high-resolution X-ray diffraction (XRD) and polarized neutron diffraction (PND) in a unified model. A new algorithm that allows for a simultaneous refinement of(More)
The experimental charge-density distribution of the dinuclear cobalt(II) complex [Co(2)(sym-hmp)(2)](BPh(4))(2)·2H(2)O·2C(3)H(6)O was determined at 100 K. When decreasing the temperature, the magnetic susceptibility of this complex deviates from Curie law because of anti-ferromagnetic exchange interactions, but the susceptibility increases sharply at low(More)
