Analysis of crystalline perfection of pure and Mo-doped KTP crystals on different growth planes by high-resolution X-ray diffraction

J. Rajeev Gandhi, M. Rathnakumari, P. Muralimanohar, P. Sureshkumar and G. Bhagavannarayana

Synopsis: Pure and Mo-doped KTP crystals have been grown by the high-temperature solution growth (HTSG) technique. The effect of doping on crystalline perfection in different growth planes has been investigated. The observed structural defects are probably due to mechanical or thermal fluctuations occurring during the growth process. [OK?]

Position-dependent shear-induced austenite-martensite transformation in double-notched TRIP and dual-phase steel samples

R. Blondé, E. Jimenez-Melero, S. Ponnusami, L. Zhao, N. Schell, E. Brück, S. van der Zwaag and N. van Dijk

Synopsis: The interplay between local strain development and the austenite-to-martensite transformation in low-alloyed transformation-induced-plasticity (TRIP) steel has been studied in situ during shear deformation by spatially resolved high-energy X-ray diffraction experiments in the vicinity of the shear zone.

In-house simultaneous collection of small-angle X-ray scattering, wide-angle X-ray diffraction and Raman scattering data from polymeric materials

R. Hirose, T. Yoshioka, H. Yamamoto, K. R. Reddy, D. Tahara, K. Hamada and K. Tashiro

Synopsis: A system for in-house small-angle X-ray scattering/wide-angle X-ray diffraction/Raman simultaneous measurements has been developed. The usefulness of the system has been demonstrated in a structural study of the ferroelectric phase transition of vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene copolymers described herein.

Accepted 25 March 2014

An improved method for calibrating time-of-flight Laue single-crystal neutron diffractometers

C. L. Bull, M. W. Johnson, H. Hamidov, K. Komatsu, M. Guthrie, M. J. Gutmann, J. S. Loveday and R. J. Nelmes

Synopsis: An improved method of calibrating neutron time-of-flight single-crystal instruments is described. The calibration method has led to improved lattice parameter determination and ability of the orientation matrix to describe the reflection positions on the detector surface.

Accepted 22 March 2014

Integration of neutron time-of-flight single-crystal Bragg peaks in reciprocal space

A. J. Schultz, M. R. V. Jørgensen, X. Wang, R. L. Mikkelson, D. J. Mikkelson, V. E. Lynch, P. F. Peterson, M. L. Green and C. M. Hoffmann

Synopsis: Single-crystal time-of-flight neutron diffraction event data are mapped into reciprocal space. Integration of peaks in reciprocal space provides intensities which lead to more precise and accurate results than those obtained from detector histogram space.

RootProf: software for multivariate analysis of unidimensional profiles

R. Caliandro and D. B. Belviso

Synopsis: An interactive program for multivariate chemometric analysis of profiles from diffraction or spectroscopic measurements is presented. Examples of the program's usage include quantitative phase analysis of powder X-ray diffraction patterns, correlation analysis of X-ray powder diffraction patterns with nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry measurements, quantitative analysis of X-ray absorption spectroscopy spectra, and qualitative analysis of small-angle X-ray scattering profiles and macromolecular X-ray diffraction patterns.

Smoothing of X-ray diffraction data and K[alpha]2 elimination using penalized likelihood and the composite link model

J. J. de Rooi, N. M, van der Pers, R. W. A. Hendrikx, R. Delhez, A. J. Böttger and P. H. C. Eilers

Synopsis: This article proposes a framework for smoothing and K[alpha] doublet elimination of X-ray diffraction scans in an automated fashion. Smoothing is performed using penalized likelihood estimation, while for doublet elimination the model is extended using the composite link model.
