The most of the recent results of research into the structure of various types of magnetic fluids on the nanometer level that uses SANS was investigated. A scientific session of the Physical Science Division of the Russian Academy of Science (RAS) was held on May 30, 2007 in the conference hall of the P N Lebedev Physical Institute, RAS. The main focus was given towards the study of small angle neutron scattering (SANS) which is used in the structure of various types of magnetic fluids. A SANS experiment analyzed the scattering of neutrons by inhomogeneities with sizes varying from 1 to 100 nm. The nuclear and magnetic scattering components was directly separated by using small-angle scattering of polarized neutrons. The experiments with magnetic nanoparticles showed that their specific magnetization is decreased as the nanoparticles get smaller.
