Incommensurate Crystallography

Sander van Smaalen

International Union of Crystallography Monographs on Crystallography

  • First textbook dealing with crystallography of incommensurately modulated crystals and incommensurate composite crystals.
  • Provides a comprehensive account of the superspace theory - necessary background for the understanding of incommensurability in crystal structures.
  • Includes a complete account of crystallographic methods of structural analysis of incommensurate crystals.
  • Important applications in the study of materials like high-temperature superconductors, low-dimensional electronic crystals, charge-density wave compounds, magnetic materials and ferroelectrics.
