NATO Science for Peace and Security Series B: Physics and Biophysics

Uniting Electron Crystallography and Powder Diffraction

Editors: Kolb, U., Shankland, K., Meshi, L., Avilov, A., David, W.I.F. (Eds.)

  • It is the only book of its kind that is dedicated to covering these two structural characterization techniques in depth
  • These two complementary techniques have developed rapidly over the past decade and the book covers much of the state-of-the-art in both
  • Materials scientists wishing to understand the basics and range of applicability of the techniques will gain a broad and comprehensive understanding of these closely related areas of research

About this book

The polycrystalline and nanocrystalline states play an increasingly important role in exploiting the properties of materials, encompassing applications as diverse as pharmaceuticals, catalysts, solar cells and energy storage. A knowledge of the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structure of materials is essential for understanding and controlling their properties, yet traditional single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods lose their power when only polycrystalline and nanocrystalline samples are available. It is here that powder diffraction and single-crystal electron diffraction techniques take over, substantially extending the range of applicability of the crystallographic principles of structure determination. 

This volume, a collection of teaching contributions presented at the Crystallographic Course in Erice in 2011, clearly describes the fundamentals and the state-of-the-art of powder diffraction and electron diffraction methods in materials characterisation, encompassing a diverse range of disciplines and materials stretching from archeometry to zeolites.   As such, it is a comprehensive and valuable resource for those wishing to gain an understanding of the broad applicability of these two rapidly developing fields.
