The fact that neutrons have a spin, makes them a fantastic tool to investigate deeply the magnetism in the matter. With neutrons we can measure directly a plethora of magnetic properties and effects: magnetic structures, spin density maps, spin dynamics from neV to eV ($i.e.$, dynamic in spin glass, spin liquids, molecular magnets), magnetic transitions and magnetic interactions including paramagnetic, vortex distribution in superconductors, strongly correlated systems, interfaces and interactions in magnetic multilayers, short correlations in highly frustrated magnetic systems, etc. A number of significant examples will be reported in order to show the high potentiality of neutrons in this field.
