In this paper we discuss polarization analysis in x-ray magnetic scattering experiments. The cross section for x-ray scattering is calculated, including magnetic terms, and three examples of magnetic structures are considered. It is shown that the contributions of the orbital- and spinmagnetization densities may be identified by analyzing the polarization of the scattered beam. We describe an instrument for performing linear polarization analysis in x-ray scattering experiments, and summarize its application in recent studies of holmium.
