An Introduction to the Theory of Diffraction presents the fundamentals of diffraction theory. This book discusses other topics, such as absorption in cylindrical or slab-shaped specimens, which do not closely involve the fundamentals of diffraction.Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamentals of wave motion and a short account of the interaction of atoms with X-ray, electrons, and neutrons. This text then examines the differences between atomic scattering factors for the various radiations. Other chapters consider a number of problems in which the distribution of scattering sources is either one-dimensional in nature or can be reduced to one dimension. This book discusses as well the principle of superposition, which ensures that Fourier analysis has an application to diffraction theory. The final chapter deals with the importance of reciprocal lattice on the relation it bears to the crystal lattice.This book is a valuable resource for metallurgists.
