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.

The following question then arises : is the wave scattered by an atom simply the
sum of the waves scattered by its component electrons ? More precisely , does
an atom of atomic number Z , i.e. , an atom containing Z electrons , scatter a wave

To find an analytical expression for a vector representing a wave , draw the wave
vector in the complex plane as in Fig . 4-12 . Here again the amplitude and phase
of the wave are given by A , the length of the vector , and d , the angle between ...
