Definition
----------

The model describes the scattering of a single-domain haematite nanospindles oriented in a magnetic field [#Zakutna2019]_.
The magnetic easy axis of haematite is fixed in the basal plane coinciding with the equatorial plane of the particle.
This leads to the peculiar behaviour that the particle aligns with its short axis along the external field and the long axis is free to rotate around
the magnetic magnetic moment. In zero field the nanospindles in dispersion are randomly oriented, whereas for high magnetic field the particle long axis rotates in the plane perpendicular to the field due to Brownian motion.

The 2D scattering intensity is modeled with the form factor of an ellipsoid
given by [#Feigin1987]_

.. math::

P(q,alpha) = frac{	ext{scale}}{V} F^2(q,alpha) + 	ext{background}

where

.. math::

F(q,alpha) = 3Delta
ho V frac{(sin qr  - qr cos qr)}{(qr)^3}

for

.. math::

r = left[ R_e^2 sin^2 alpha + R_p^2 cos^2 alpha
ight]^{1/2}

\$alpha\$ is the angle between the polar axis of the ellipsoid and \$mathbf{q}\$,
\$V = (4/3)pi R_pR_e^2\$ is the volume of the ellipsoid, \$R_p\$ is the polar
radius along the rotational axis of the ellipsoid, \$R_e\$ is the equatorial
\$Delta
ho\$ is the scattering length density difference between
the scatterer and the solvent.

The field-induced orientation will be derived for anisometric particles with the polar axis
n.

The easy axis

.. math::

mathbf{e}_A = left( cos psi, sin psi sin gamma_1, sin psi cos gamma_1
ight)

is oriented with the polar angle \$psi\$ towards the magnetic field and precessing under an angle \$gamma_1\$.

The particle polar axis (perpendicular to the magnetic easy axis) is found with

.. math::

mathbf{n} = mathbf{n}_0 cos gamma_2 + mathbf{n}_0 	imes mathbf{e}_A sin gamma_2

and an arbitrary orientation vector perpendicular to the easy axis

.. math::

mathbf{n}_0 = left( -sin psi, cos psi sin gamma_1, cos psi cos gamma_1
ight)

The projection angle \$alpha\$ is then obtained with

.. math::

cos alpha = mathbf{n} cdot mathbf{q}

The particle is free to precess over the angles \$gamma_1\$ and \$gamma_2\$. The distribution \$P(psi)\$ of the easy axis to the magnetic field is given by Boltzmann statistics

.. math::

P(psi)=xi exp(xi cos psi)/exp(xi -1)

and the Langevin parameter \$xi=mu mu_0 H/ k_B T\$ with \$mu_0\$ the permeability of free space, \$mu\$ the integral particle moment, \$k_B\$ the Boltzmann constant and \$T\$ the absolute temperature.

The angle \$eta\$ allows to choose the direction of the applied magnetic field, with \$eta=90\$ Degrees the field aligned along the horizontal axis, and for \$eta=0\$ Degrees the field directed along the beam direction.

The model is computationally demanding with 3 averages over orientational distributions, make sure to have a performant system with GPU and patience.
