  X-ray Diffraction      

Learning Objectives:

After completing this section you should be able to:

  • explain how experimental x-ray techniques increase the amount of information available for x-ray diffraction patterns;
  • describe the difference between powder, rotating crystal and Laue diffraction experimental set ups; and
  • index powder patterns to determine the structure type and lattice parameters for unknown cubic samples.
