Elements of X-ray Diffraction
Prentice Hall, 2001 - Technology & Engineering - 664 pages
Intended to acquaint the reader with the theory of x-ray diffraction, the experimental methods involved, and the main applications. The book is a collection of principles and methods stressing X-ray diffraction rather than metallurgy. KEY TOPICS: The book is written entirely in terms of the Bragg law and can be read without any knowledge of the reciprocal lattice. It is divided into three main parts--Fundamentals; experimental methods; and applications. MARKET: Designed for beginners, not as a reference tool for the advanced reader.

... PATTERN At this point it is profitable to digress slightly from the main subject of
this chapter and to examine some of the changes produced in a powder pattern
when the unit cell of the substance involved is distorted in various ways .
The investigator must know at the outset , from an understanding of the
phenomenon involved , the kind of relation ( linear , parabolic , exponential , etc. )
the two quantities x and y are supposed to obey . All the least - squares method
can do is ...
The experimental difficulties involved in measuring crystallite size from line
broadening increase with the size of the crystallite measured . Roughly speaking
, relatively crude measurements suffice in the range 0-500 Å , but very good ...
