European Powder Diffraction EPDIC 8
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
X-ray powder diffraction is a long-established and invaluable technique which is widely applied to the characterization of crystalline materials. The method has traditionally been used for phase identification, quantitative analysis and for the determination of structural imperfections. In recent years however, its use has been extended into exciting new areas such as the extraction of three-dimensional microstructural properties.
This book contains 88 papers which deal with new findings, and insights into the subject. The contents are discussed under the headings of METHOD DEVELOPMENT: Determination of Crystal Structure and Lattice Constants, Qualitative and Quantitative Phase Analysis, Analysis of Microstructure and Macrostress, Texture and Coarse Grains; INSTRUMENTAL DEVELOPMENT AND MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES; NEUTRON POWDER DIFFRACTION; MATERIALS: Thin Layers, Polymers and Amorphous Materials, Metals and Alloys, Minerals and Inorganics, Organic Materials.Altogether, this timely collection of papers provides an essential outline of the newest developments in the field of Powder Diffraction.
