TOPIQ | Measurement and analysis of single crystal diffuse scattering.

Measurement and Analysis of Single Crystal Diffuse Scattering


Diffuse scattering is a continuous signal that is present between Bragg peaks. It is especially prominent in disordered crystals and, if modeled, allows us to understand the real structure of such crystals at local scale.

In this 75-minute workshop (9:00 AM – 10:15 CDT) we will introduce the concept of diffuse scattering, show how to measure it, and how to analyze it using a fast method based on the three dimensional difference pair distribution function. We will start from the basics and do not expect from participants any prior knowledge on diffuse scattering or disorder modeling.
