The technique of longitudinal polarization analysis on a multi-detector ("xyz"- polarization analysis) is presented. This technique allows the simultaneous and unambiguous determination of the nuclear, magnetic and nuclear spin-incoherent scattering functions as a function of both momentum and energy transfer. Several examples of neutron polarization analysis studies of disordered systems are given, illustrating the valuable information which can be retrieved from the analysis of neutron scattering between the Bragg peaks.
