Ewald Construction P. P. Ewald was responsible for interpreting Laue's results in terms of reciprocal lattices. He devised a simple geometric constr ction that demonstrates the relationship in q ite elegant b t simple terms simple geometric construction that demonstrates the relationship in quite elegant but simple terms. He separated the origins of direct and reciprocal space placing the crystal at the center of a sphere of radius 1/ . The origin of reciprocal space is placed on the surface of the sphere where S 0 (the incident beam) exits the sphere.

Unformatted text preview: B.E. Warren, x ‐ ray diffraction The basics of crystallography and diffraction By Christopher Hammond, pg198 new book Bragg's Law is Equivalent to Laue Condition So Or In the Bragg construction both the incident beam an the scattered beam are inclined to the ( hkl) plane at an angle q making the angles of incidence and "reflection" equal. This can be achieved in the Laue ti ki l hi h d t k i l tti t l equations by making the angles which the S and S vectors make to the reciprocal lattice vector equal. Call this angle n. Remember that the reciprocal lattice direction is perpendicular to the ( hkl) plane. These conditions can be shown on an Ewald sphere diagram. ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
