Neutron and X-Rays: Tutorial on Sources, Instrumentation, and Scattering

This two part tutorial will be held on Sunday Feb. 16. 2014 in conjunction with the TMS 2014 Annual Meeting and Exhibition.  The tutorial will review neutrons and X-rays, including sources, instrumentation, theories of scattering and diffraction, concept of reciprocal space, Ewald construction, dynamic and kinematic theory, limit to small crystals, nanocrystals, lattice gradients. It will explain some fundamentals of line profile analysis, with basic facts on nanoparticles – their shapes and most typical properties – restricting the attention to the simplest case of metal systems. The state-of-the-art diffraction analysis of defects will be introduced in the tutorial.
