either dynamical and kinematic X-ray diffraction is taken into account from a unified standpoint, within which the dynamical diffraction in single-scattering approximation serves as a bridge among those elements. The textual content emphasizes the elemental legislation that govern the interplay of X-rays with subject, but in addition covers intimately classical and smooth purposes, e.g., line broadening, texture and strain/stress analyses, X-ray mapping in reciprocal area, high-resolution X-ray diffraction within the spatial and wave vector domain names, X-ray focusing, inelastic and time-resolved X-ray scattering. This targeted scope, together with another way hard-to-find details on analytic expressions for simulating X-ray diffraction profiles in thin-film heterostructures, X-ray interplay with phonons, coherent scattering of Mossbauer radiation, and energy-variable X-ray diffraction, makes the e-book fundamental for any critical consumer of X-ray diffraction techniques.
Compact and self-contained, this textbook is appropriate for college students taking X-ray diffraction classes in the direction of specialization in fabrics technological know-how, physics, chemistry, or biology. various simple illustrations, an easy-to-read kind of writing, in addition to fairly brief, simply digestible chapters all facilitate comprehension.
