Description Written by one of the pioneers of 2D X-Ray Diffraction, this useful guide covers the fundamentals, experimental methods and applications of two-dimensional x-ray diffraction, including geometry convention, x-ray source and optics, two-dimensional detectors, diffraction data interpretation, and configurations for various applications, such as phase identification, texture, stress, microstructure analysis, crystallinity, thin film analysis and combinatorial screening. Experimental examples in materials research, pharmaceuticals, and forensics are also given. This presents a key resource to researchers in materials science, chemistry, physics, and pharmaceuticals, as well as graduate-level students in these areas. About B. B. He Bob Baoping He is the Director of R&D and Engineering at Bruker AXS (formerly Siemens AXS). Mr. He holds a PhD in materials science from Virginia Tech and holds twelve U.S. patents. Back cover copy The fundamentals, theory, and wide-ranging applications of two-dimensional X-ray diffraction Two-Dimensional X-Ray Diffraction is proving itself as an ideal non-destructive, analytical method for measuring the atomic arrangement of materials and extracting an array of information beyond the limitations of conventional X-ray diffraction. Researchers in materials science, chemistry, physics, pharmaceuticals, and related fields will find this introductory reference invaluable in understanding and applying two-dimensional X-ray diffraction for examining a broad range of samples. Two-Dimensional X-Ray Diffraction shows how two-dimensional X-ray diffraction can be a useful tool for the examination of metals, polymers, ceramics, semiconductors, thin films, coatings, paints, biomaterials and composites for material science researches, molecular structure determination and polymorphism study for drug discovery and processing, and samples with micro volume or micro-area for forensic analysis, and archaeology analysis, to name just a few of the method's applications. The text covers: The fundamentals of X-ray diffraction and its extension to two-dimensional X-ray diffraction The geometry conventions and diffraction vector approach for diffraction data interpretation, data correction, and process algorithms for various applications Instrumentation technologies, including the critical components, such as X-ray source and optics, two-dimensional detectors, goniometer, and sample stages The configurations of the two-dimensional X-ray diffraction systems for various applications, such as phase identification, texture, stress, microstructure analysis, crystallinity, thin film analysis, and combinatorial screening Experimental examples in materials research, pharmaceuticals, materials processing, and quality control Written by one of the pioneers in the field, Two-Dimensional X-Ray Diffraction brings readers up to speed on a fast-rising, state-of-the-art method for materials characterization. Review quote The author has maintained a very readable style for the whole of this intensely practical and useful book. It should become a standard text for the development of new laboratory systems or for students trying to interpret data from 2D area detector systems of any type. It will also be of use to anyone setting up a 2D system regardless of geometry, since the underlying principles of the scattering process and the projection of that scattering are so lucidly presented.
