Description: This resource is a video guide, which shows how to obtain a diffraction pattern of a powder with the help of X-Ray diffractometer. The video covers a sample praparation, sample placement, and the measurement of 2theta angles of diffracted by the sample X-rays. X-ray diffraction is a non-destructive analytical characterisation technique employed to identify crystalline phases which may be present in the sample. It also determines structural properties, such as defects, epitaxy, grain size, phase composition and preferred orientation.
