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.

Note that the material of the target affects the intensity but not the wavelength

maxima appear at certain wavelengths , superimposed on the continuous
To return to the problem of wavelength determination , it is an interesting and
crucial fact that Bragg was able to solve the crystal structure of NaCl without
knowing the wavelength of the x - rays being diffracted . All he knew - all he
needed to ...
Bragg's law shows that the shorter the wavelength , the smaller the Bragg angle
for planes of a given spacing . Decreasing the wavelength will therefore shift
every diffraction line to lower Bragg angles and increase the total number of lines
