Applications of Neutron Powder Diffraction

Erich H. Kisi and Christopher J. Howard

Oxford Series on Neutron Scattering in Condensed Matter

  • First book to collect the diverse elements of neutron powder diffraction
  • Highlights the diversity of problems that can be studied using the technique and gives concrete theoretical and practical guidance on their solution
  • Emphasises both the crystallographic aspects AND the wider applications to which it is also well suited (quantitative phase analysis, microstructural analysis, residual stress analysis, and elastic constant determination)
  • Gives examples of the benefits of in situ experiments conducted in real time under simulated service or actual synthesis conditions
  • Explores new areas such as the use of peak broadening analysis to investigate gradients within materials in non-equilibrium conditions (e.g. functionally gradient materials)
