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 9 Phase Identification by X - Ray Diffraction 9-1 INTRODUCTION A
given substance always produces a ... diffraction pattern , whether that substance
is present in the pure state or as one constituent of a mixture of substances .
cation of diffraction analysis is in distinguishing between different allotropic
modifications of the same substance : solid silica , for example , exists in one
amorphous and six crystalline modifications , and the diffraction patterns of these
Many substances are very difficult to prepare in single - crystal form , and the
development of the Rietveld method for ... Because there are many more lines on
the pattern of a substance of low symmetry , such as triclinic , than on the pattern
