Polarized neutron diffraction (PND) is a powerful method which provides direct access to the scattering contribution from nuclear-magnetic interference and thus reveals the phase difference between the nuclear and magnetic structure. Generally limited to the case of centrosymmetric structures in the paramagnetic state, this information can be used to construct spin density maps and local susceptibility tensors in order to study the anisotropy between magnetic interactions. Introducing an advanced approach in the maximum-entropy method for a model-free reconstruction of spin densities, these limitations were overcome. PND was applied to study the magnetic anisotropy in the non-centrosymmetric unconventional multiferroic Ba2CoGe2O7. Using the new approach, a detailed 3D spin density distribution in the unit cell was obtained for the first time both in the paramagnetic and antiferromagnetic ground state. The obtained results clearly show the 2D character of the magnetic interactions in the title compound and are compared to the results of regular magnetic structure refinement.
