Ordinary helical inclusion-induced dislocations and dislocation loops and their mobility, electrodomain, growth boundary etc. in crystals of β-BaB2O4 have been studied by X-ray topography. The inclusion formation is discussed in terms of the microphase transition from the β to the α phase or vice versa.

A simple model of surface relaxation in nanocrystals generates powder lines whose Gaussian shapes and asymmetric tails mimic details observed in diffraction patterns of colloidal ferrite particles. This suggests that surface relaxation in nanoparticles can be measured with this old technique.
