Teaching methods


Principles of the diffraction of x-rays by solid state substances are elucidated and pertinent experimental techniques as well as procedures for the evaluation of diffraction patterns are described. The meaning of the reciprocal lattice and the Ewald construction is explained. Formulae forthe calculation of intensition, breadths and azimutal profiles of diffraction lines are derived. Use of the x-ray diffraction for the identification of phase composition, phase abundance analysis and determination of the particle size, stresses (of the 1st,2nd and 3rd kind) and preferred orientation is discussed.
