Synopsis: TEMPy is an object-oriented Python library that provides the means to validate density fits in electron microscopy reconstructions. This article highlights several features of particular interest for this purpose and includes some customised examples.
Synopsis: A laboratory X-ray diffraction setup is reported, which allows quantitative characterization of the microtwin and antiphase domain densities in epitaxial GaP/Si thin layers.
Synopsis: Apparatus is described for the purposes of automated grain-mapping polycrystalline samples within a laboratory environment, using a motorized sample stage and a CCD detector. The limitations that come from using a faster detector of relatively small surface are countered using an automated translation stage.
Synopsis: The grain-refining mechanism of cast zinc through copper inoculation is described, and the hexagonal close packing orientation relationship in zinc-copper alloys is identified using electron backscatter diffraction, an Euler-based numerical method and the edge-to-edge crystallographic matching model.
Synopsis: This paper proposes a simple three-dimensional structural evaluation system for a film during uniaxial deformation. The two-dimensional patterns of small-angle X-ray scattering and wide-angle X-ray diffraction at the so-called edge and end views, and stress-strain data, can be obtained by this system during film stretching.
Synopsis: Digital image analysis methods are developed to measure the strain in helium implanted polycrystals, from X-ray Laue patterns. Badly detected spots, fitting errors and low-accuracy results are automatically detected and eliminated using statistical tools based on least-squares fitting.
Synopsis: CRISTALES: a world to discover is a teaching/outreach exhibition for schools and universities, offering a groundbreaking view of crystallography and its main contributions to society.
Synopsis: Structural changes in vertebrate bone tissues caused by bone growth or by weightlessness were studied using a combination of X-ray tomography at different wavelengths and X-ray fluorescence analysis.
