This website is a review tutorial of x-ray crystallography. It serves as a refresher of the subject and gives insight into typical problems relating to this technique. Topics include x-ray diffraction, crystal structure determination, and refinement. Links to short explanations on the related topics of powder diffraction, thermal motion, Bragg's Law, and Fourier synthesis and the phase problem are also included. For students wishing to test their comprehension, there is a short quiz with answers at the end of the tutorial.
