A quick convergent-beam laboratory X-ray reflectometer using a simultaneous multiple-angle dispersive geometry

An X-ray reflectometer using a laboratory X-ray source that can measure the specular X-ray reflectivity curve with a time resolution of 10 s or less was developed. Low reflectivities can be measured accurately because the background can be subtracted from the signal.

X-ray investigation of strained epitaxial layer systems by reflections in skew geometry

The ability and technical requirements for a complex characterization of strained epitaxial layer systems by using reflections in skew geometry is discussed on four examples of SiGe/Si(001) structures.

Rod-like particles growing in sol-gel processing of 1:1 molar mixtures of 3-glycidoxypropyl­tri­meth­oxy­silane and tetra­eth­oxy­silane

Rod-like particles with constant radius and variable length grow at the firstly stages of aggregation in the sol-gel processing of 1:1 molar mixtures of 3-glycidoxypropyl­tri­meth­oxy­silane and tetra­eth­oxy­silane. Larger aggregates with higher dimensionality formed by rod-like subunits grow at more advanced degrees of aggregation.

New functions and graphical user interface attached to powder indexing software CONOGRAPH

A powder indexing software, CONOGRAPH, as an integrated system is reported.

Three-dimensional texture visualization approaches: theoretical analysis and examples

Accepted 18 January 2017

Simulations and experimental demonstrations of encoding for X-ray coherent scattering

Examples of encoding for X-ray diffraction experiments are presented. The encoding was shown to recover critical information from the experiments.

Accepted 17 January 2017

Neutron filter efficiency of beryllium and magnesium fluorides

First-principles calculations are used to study the vibrational properties of MgF2 and BeF2. The calculated phonon densities of states are used to study the thermal neutron inelastic scattering cross sections as a function of neutron incident energy and temperature. Comparisons of neutron filter efficiencies and neutron transmissions through both materials are reported.

Accepted 16 January 2017

Nanoscale characterization of bis­muth telluride epitaxial layers by advanced X-ray analysis

Methods to implement nanostructured models for dynamic simulation of X-ray diffraction in non-periodic layered materials with large d spacing are described, and applied to study the case of bismuth telluride epitaxial films grown on barium difluoride (111) substrates.

Accepted 14 January 2017

Crystal structure of fractionally crystallized waxes isolated from crude oil

A petroleum wax has been extracted from an Indian crude oil and crystallized into two fractions, depending on its solubility in methyl isobutyl ketone–toluene at 298 and 313 K. The crystalline nature of the fractionated waxes has been determined by X-ray diffraction.

Structure of epitaxial SrIrO3 perovskite studied by interference between X-ray waves diffracted by the substrate and the thin film

The unit-cell parameters of metastable orthorhombic SrIrO3 phases epitaxially stabilized on various substrates (DyScO3, GdScO3, NdScO3 and SrTiO3) are reported. The atomic coordinates of the SrIrO3 layers are determined by collecting X-ray diffraction curves of a large number of Bragg peaks. The present method, which is described in detail, utilizes not only the Bragg peak intensities but also the interference between waves diffracted by the substrate and the thin film.
