Neutron scattering can provide unique atomic scale information about structural and dynamical properties of frustrated magnetism. In this lecture I will give a brief description of theoretical and practical aspects of the technique. Experiments on frustrated magnets that illustrate the capabilities of new instrumentation at the Spallation Neutron Source and NIST will serve as examples. The target audience is scientists who are interested in using neutrons in their research, collaborating with a neutron scattering group, or who seek a deeper understanding of the corresponding experimental
literature [1].
