Neutron magnetic moment

The neutron magnetic moment is (-1.9130427 \pm .0000005)\mu_N, where μN is the nuclear magneton. (Source: July 2006 Particle Physics Booklet, Particle Data Group,

The magnetic moment is negative which means that the neutron has a tendency to align antiparallel to a magnetic field rather than parallel to the field.

The non-zero magnetic moment of the neutron indicates that it is not an elementary particle, as it carries no net charge but still interacts with a magnetic field.

The Lande g-factor for the Neutron is -3.826 085 46 +- 0.000 000 90
