Abstract-We have developed a new scattering geometry for magnetic neutron scattering experiments on
YBa2Cu307 in which the phonon background around q - (E, -), Rw - 40meV is significantly reduced.
We use this new approach to study the previously detected &a& magnetic excitation at - 4OmeV in the
superconducting state in detail. The excitation does not shift substantially in energy up to at least 75K
(-0.8T,). Polarized neutron scattering experiments (horizontal minus vertical field) confirm the magnetic
origin of the 40meV excitation and put stringent limits on the magnetic scattering intensity in the normal
state.
Over the past seven years, numerous magnetic neutron scat-
tering experiments on the underdoped Y3a&u30s+x sys-
