This article presents experiments on the determination of the length scales of magnetic correlation in ε-Co nanoparticle assemblies using SANS (small angle neutron scattering). In this experiment a 0.5 nm neutron beam was passed through a sealed sample containing a dense assembly of the nanoparticles, and the scattered intensity was collected with two-dimensional detector. Data were collected with magnetic fields ranging from 0 to 5 T, which were applied perpendicular to the neutron beam. The temperature varied between 5 and 275 K.
