[Cover illustration] Cover illustration: The crystal structure of titanite, CaTiOSiO4, viewed down the direction of the octahedral TiO6 chains. The full green lines indicate a unit cell of the two-dimensional Ising model, used to predict diffuse scattering intensity observable in layers normal to the chain direction. Ti atoms are shown in green, Ca in light grey, O in blue. The thinner red lines are Si-O bonds, the thick red lines Ti-O1 bonds. Courtesy of T. Malcherek, C. Paulmann, M. C. Domeneghetti & U.

Thermal expansion and atomic displacement parameters of cubic KMgF3 perovskite determined by high-resolution neutron powder diffraction

I. G. Wood, K. S. Knight, G. D. Price and J. A. Stuart

Synopsis: The structure of KMgF3 has been determined by high-resolution neutron powder diffraction at 4.2 K, room temperature and at 10 K intervals from 373 K to 1223 K, and is found to remain cubic at all temperatures. Thermal expansion was fitted using a second-order Grüneisen approximation to the zero-pressure equation of state, while the atomic displacement parameters were found to increase smoothly with temperature and could be fitted using Debye models.

A microspectrophotometer for UV-visible absorption and fluorescence studies of protein crystals

D. Bourgeois, X. Vernede, V. Adam, E. Fioravanti and T. Ursby

Synopsis: A microspectrophotometer is described that allows one to probe protein crystals both in absorption and in fluorescence mode. The results highlight the interest in fluorescence microspectrophotometry for future studies in structural enzymology and protein dynamics.

Deconvolution of morphological texture from crystallographic texture data

G. Langelaan, L. Delannay, I. Verpoest and P. Van Houtte

Synopsis: It is shown that the orientation distribution of the fibres in a composite can be determined by deconvolution of the crystallographic texture of the fibre phase in the composite with the crystallographic texture internal to the fibres.

An analytical approximation for a size-broadened profile given by the lognormal and gamma distributions

N. C. Popa and D. Balzar

Synopsis: The size-broadened profile is modelled in terms of lognormal and gamma distributions of spherical crystallites. The method is applied to two ceria powders, which illustrates shortcomings of the current representation of the size-broadened profile in Rietveld refinement.

Unbiased analysis of neutron and X-ray reflectivity data by an evolution strategy

E. Politsch and G. Cevc

Synopsis: A novel free-form fit method for unbiased analysis of neutron and X-ray reflectivity data by an evolution strategy cancels out unsystematic features in scattering length density profiles, while it accentuates reliable details.

The correction of reflection intensities for incomplete absorption of high-energy X-rays in the CCD phosphor

G. Wu, B. L. Rodrigues and P. Coppens

Synopsis: It is shown that incomplete absorption of the X-ray beam in the phosphor of an area detector causes an incident-angle dependence of the recorded X-ray intensities.

Ab initio modelling of intermetallics with CuAl2 structure type: computed powder patterns from cell-and-type CRYSTMET entries

Y. Le Page, J. R. Rodgers and P. S. White

Synopsis: Fractional coordinates for structures with known type can be modelled from first principles to about the accuracy of coordinates in routine powder diffraction studies. Powder patterns recalculated from published X-ray cell data and ab initio atom coordinates can then be used for identification of materials just as well as those recalculated from structure results coming from routine X-ray powder studies.
