Abstract: The pole-avoidance principle of magnetostatics results in an angular anisotropy of the magnetic neutron scattering cross section dΣM dΩ. For the case of a sintered Nd–Fe–B permanent magnet, we report the experimental observation of a ‘spike’ in dΣM dΩ along the forward direction. The spike implies the presence of long-wavelength magnetization fluctuations on a length scale of at least 60 nm. Using micromagnetic theory, it is shown that this type of angular anisotropy is the result of the presence of unavoidable magnetic poles in the bulk of the magnet and is related to the q ≠ 0 Fourier modes of the magnetostatic field. Thus, our observation proves the existence of such modes.© 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.
