This application note provides a basic introduction to in-plane diffraction. It includes a short description of the technique and demonstrates its application on the X’Pert3 MRD.
Many different in-plane diffraction experiments are possible on the X’Pert
3 MRD system, incorporating different types of scan and using different PreFIX optical modules. Examples of different types of experiment are described in this note together with practical tips highlighting the specific areas of concern in in-plane diffraction.
