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.

Chapter 10 Determination of Crystal Structure 10-1 . INTRODUCTION Since
1913 , when W. L. Bragg solved the structure of NaCl , the structures of many
thousands of crystals , organic and inorganic , have been determined . This vast
body of ...
The average materials scientist / engineer is rarely , if ever , called upon to
determine an unknown crystal structure . If the structure is at all complex , its
determination is a job for a specialist in x - ray crystallography , who can bring
NaCl is ionic and in ZnS covalent , since both kinds of bonding have been
observed in telluride structures . The next step is to calculate relative diffracted
intensities for each structure and compare them with experiment , in order to
