Outline and Purpose of the Course Structural analyses by X-ray diffraction method will be given. In the lecture, the properties of X-rays, X-ray diffraction phenomena, crystallography, and diffraction by powder samples will be lectured.
Course Goals Students will learn the crystal structure analyses by X-rays through the course works of X-ray properties, crystalline structures, diffraction conditions, and reciprocal lattices.
