The following list briefly explains the principle of X-ray structure analysis.
In addition, typical areas of application are presented as examples:
X-ray structure analysis allows the identification of crystalline materials via X-ray diffraction (XRD) at the crystal lattice. The position and intensity of the maxima in the diffraction pattern depends on the arrangement of the atoms in the crystal lattice and is thus specific to a material. X-ray structure analysis is often performed on fine powders and is therefore also called powder diffractometry.
The powder diffractometry is used for
