Synopsis: Three in situ X-ray diffraction sample environments for gas-solid and gas-solid-liquid reactions at elevated pressure and temperature are described. The environments can be used in a wide range of fields and can withstand up to1000 bar.
Synopsis: OrientXplot is a Windows program to manipulate and display relative orientation data of pairs of single crystals, allowing for the symmetry of both crystals.
Synopsis: The diffraction properties of phase gratings fabricated on an Si(111) crystal were studied by triple-axis X-ray diffraction. It is shown that the presence of a grating as a phase-shift W layer on the crystal surface causes the formation of a complicated two-dimensional diffraction pattern.
Synopsis: Neutron diffraction methods together with structure factor calculations have been applied to determine the microscopic magnetic configuration of Fe50Pt50-xRhx films as a function of temperature and Rh concentration.
Synopsis: An in situ neutron diffraction technique was used for exploring the deformation behavior in an Ni43Fe18Ga27Co12 alloy with strain glass state to reveal the new intrinsic physical nature of quasi-linear superelasticity. AUTHOR please confirm Ni43
Synopsis: The paper describes a new furnace design for high-temperature single-crystal X-ray diffraction measurements that significantly improves performance and addresses issues associated with previous designs.
Synopsis: After several years in construction and commissioning the Macromolecular Neutron Diffractometer (MaNDi) is now operational and accepting general user proposals.
Synopsis: A critical revision of fundamental crystallographic concepts and the pedagogical approaches used to introduce them is presented.
Synopsis: Near-field high-energy X-ray diffraction microscopy has been used to characterize the three-dimensional crystallographic orientation field of the hexagonal close-packed phase in a bulk Ti-6Al-4V specimen with a lamellar (-annealed) microstructure. A three-dimensional Burgers orientation relationship-based flood-fill algorithm has been implemented to reconstruct the morphologies and crystallographic orientations of the high-temperature body-centered cubic prior- grains.
Synopsis: Eleven permissible types of domain walls are predicted to exist theoretically in ferroelectric Bi4Ti3O12 according to group-theory analysis. Among them, just the five types of ferroelectric domain walls were observed in Bi4Ti3O12 single crystals using transmission electron microscopy.
Synopsis: A methodology is presented to compute diffuse scattering arising from one-phonon excitations in a time-of-flight neutron single-crystal Laue diffraction experiment from density functional theory results and illustrated using NaCl as an example.
Synopsis: The straightforward calculation of the intensity of small-angle X-ray scattering by spheres at different concentrations has shown that using the Guinier plot to find the radius of gyration of spheres underestimates it noticeably at a volume concentration of particles of 1% and higher.
Synopsis: The resonance effect in the X-ray magnetic diffraction from the ferromagnetic intermetallic compound GdAl2 is studied by a white-beam experiment and theoretical analysis.
Synopsis: Crystallography is little known to the public, even though it underpins much of the research into matter in physics, chemistry, new materials and life sciences. This article describes the travelling exhibition Journey into the crystal, which presents to the general public the science and the beauty of matter in the crystalline state with a flavour of crystallography.
