This module provides an introduction to X-ray Diffraction (XRD). XRD is a versatile, non-destructive technique that reveals detailed information about the chemical composition and crystallographic structure of materials. It is utilized in a variety of settings ranging from chemistry and materials to geology and biological sciences.
This module is aimed at presenting the basic theory and applications of X-ray Diffraction to a novice user. An interactive tutorial is also provided to help in obtaining an understanding of diffraction.
