Following completion of this TLP, you should have a basic understanding of the phenomenon of X-ray diffraction through a crystalline material. This package has explained how to use an X-ray diffraction experiment to reveal information such as what crystalline phases are present, their cell (or lattice) parameters, crystallite size and whether the phase is single crystal, oriented or a polycrystalline powder. The main aspects of collecting and analysing X-ray data in the laboratory have been covered.
