X-Ray Diffraction (X-선 회절분석론)

This course is intended for the understanding of X-ray diffraction theory and its application to a wide range of materials analysis. In the diffraction theory, the electromagnetic properties of X-ray, geometry of crystals in real and reciprocal spaces, wave-matter interactions, and Bragg condition for diffraction are treated. As for the application areas, a variety of topics are investigated, including characterization of thin films, structural analysis of bulk crystalline materials, determination of phase-diagram, etc.
  • Properties of X-rays
  • Geometry of Crystals
  • Wave-Matter Interactions
  • Directions of X-ray Diffraction
  • Intensities of Diffracted Beams
  • Thin Film Analysis by X-ray Diffraction
  • Laue Method and Determination of Crystal Orientation
  • Powder Diffraction and Determination of Crystal Structure
