An Introduction to the Scope, Potential and Applications of X-ray Analysis

Michael Laing, International Union of Crystallography

This site from Michael Laing at the University of Natal provides an introduction to X-ray crystallography and the applications of various techniques. A discussion of basic crystallography leads into X-ray diffraction and a variety of X-ray techniques, including Laue, powder, and single crystal methods. Other topics include difffractometers, the reciprocal lattice explorer, and moving crystal and moving film methods such as the rotation, precession and Weissenberg methods. A section on applications and analysis of these methods is also included. Diagrams, tables and graphs support the text.
