The Basics of Crystallography and Diffraction

Author: Christopher Hammond
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191567711
Release Date: 2009-05-07
Genre: Science

This book provides a clear introduction to topics which are essential to students in a wide range of scientific disciplines but which are otherwise only covered in specialised and mathematically detailed texts. It shows how crystal structures may be built up from simple ideas of atomic packing and co-ordination, it develops the concepts of crystal symmetry, point and space groups by way of two dimensional examples of patterns and tilings, it explains the concept of the reciprocal lattice in simple terms and shows its importance in an understanding of light, X-ray and electron diffraction. Practical examples of the applications of these techniques are described and also the importance of diffraction in the performance of optical instruments. The book is also of value to the general reader since it shows, by biographical and historical references, how the subject has developed and thereby indicates some of the excitement of scientific discovery.

Symmetry in Crystallography

ISBN: 9780199550654
Release Date: 2011-09-22
Genre: Mathematics

A fresh approach to teaching crystallographic symmetry. Rather than being swamped by heavy algebraic notation, the reader is taken through a series of simple and beautiful examples from the visual arts, and taught how to analyse them employing the 'pictorial' diagrams used in the International Tables of Crystallography.

Fundamentals of Crystallography

ISBN: 0198509588
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Science

Crystallography and structure theory have recently received increasing interest due to their role in understanding biological structures, high-temperature superconductors, and effects on mineral properties related to changes in temperature and pressure. This text offers an account of the wide range of crystallography in various branches of science.The fundamentals, the most frequently used procedures, and experimental techniques are all described, and a number of appendices are devoted to more specialist aspects. The book is an updated edition with emphasis on the range of topical applications. Illustrations should help to clarify the subject matter. To provide a better understanding of the basics of crystallography, a compact disk has been added to this edition, offering the facilities of modern graphics to simulate experiments, show complex images, and provide a number of exercises.

Small Angle X Ray and Neutron Scattering from Solutions of Biological Macromolecules

Author: Dmitri I. Svergun
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199639533
Release Date: 2013-08-08
Genre: Science

Small-angle scattering of X-rays or neutrons is a technique that allows one to study the structures and interactions of disordered materials like polymers in the solid state, melt or solution or metal clusters in alloys. It is also the method of choice to characterize biological macromolecules in solution, in particular when they cannot be crystallized. A further advantage of the technique is that it can easily be combined with standard perturbation methods such as temperature and pressure jumps and stopped flow mixing thus offering useful information complementary to spectroscopic methods. The book describes all aspects of the technique: instrumentation, sample requirements, data interpretation and modelling methods in a comprehensive way and gives examples of applications in various fields of biophysics and biochemistry. Appendices describe the mathematical background and additional resources relevant to the method.

Crystal Structure Determination

Author: Werner Massa
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783662042489
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Science

A concise introduction to modern crystal structure determination, emphasizing both the crystallographic background and the successive practical steps. In the theoretical sections, more importance is attached to a good understanding, than to a rigorous mathematical treatment. The most important measuring techniques, including the use of modern area detectors, and the methods of data reduction, structure solution and refinement are discussed from a practical point of view. Special emphasis is put on the ability to recognize and avoid possible errors and traps, and to judge the quality of results.

X Ray Charge Densities and Chemical Bonding

Author: Philip Coppens
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
ISBN: 9780195098235
Release Date: 1997-05-08
Genre: Science

This book deals with the electron density distribution in molecules and solids as obtained experimentally by X-ray diffraction. It is a comprehensive treatment of the methods involved, and the interpretation of the experimental results in terms of chemical bonding and intermolecular interactions. Inorganic and organic solids, as well as metals, are covered in the chapters dealing with specific systems. As a whole, this monograph is especially appealing because of its broad interface with numerous disciplines. Accurate X-ray diffraction intensities contain fundamental information on the charge distribution in crystals, which can be compared directly with theoretical results, and used to derive other physical properties, such as electrostatic moments, the electrostatic potential and lattice energies, which are accessible by spectroscopic and thermodynamic measurements. Consequently, the work will be of great interest to a broad range of crystallographers and physical scientists.
