RX - Diffractomètre

Technological platform


X-ray diffraction is a constuctive interference phenomenon that occurs when a beam of X-rays (electromagnetic wave) penetrates a crystal (periodic stack of atoms).

It can therefore occur when a single crystal, a polycrystal or a powder is placed in front of an X-ray source. The location of the diffracted beams informs us about the periodicity of the crystal(s), while the intensity of these beams informs us about the nature and position of the atoms in the crystal(s).
