X-ray Diffraction

PRL Thaltej campus

X-ray diffraction is used to obtain the information on the structures of crystalline materials. Diffraction occurs as wavelength of x-rays is similar to the inter-atomic spacing in the crystals. An incident beam of monochromatic X-rays interacts with a target material is scattering. The diffraction of X-ray by crystals is described by Bragg’s Law.
