1 MEMS1054 Week 6-8 - Diffraction 2/3 Professor Jörg Wiezorek, PhD, Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK, 1994. Meets in room G37 BEH, Mon/Wed/Fri, 1-1:50PM Planes in Crystals described by Miller indices, (hkl); the interplanar spacing for a set of planes in a crystal represents the shortest distance between adjacent members in the infinite set of parallel planes and can be expressed in terms of the lattice parameters: e.g. for the orthorhombic system (a, b, c and α = β = γ =90˚), d hkl = (h 2 /a 2 + k 2 /b 2 + c 2 /l 2 ) -0.5 Can compute a table of possible spacings d hkl in descending order and then use Bragg Law to find the corresponding Bragg angles, Θ hkl . Compute for a cubic crystal (note same for P-, I- & F-lattices) with lattice parameter a 0 = x nm=a. 1) Diffracted Directions - The Bragg Law

2 2) Diffracted Beam Intensities Elements! Motif of one or two identical atoms! Cubic Crystals, a=3.5Å; Copper-k-alpha X-radiation; HCP, a=2.5Å and c/a=1.6333

3 So, here for element with motif comprised of two identical atoms, additional structural extinctions (destructively interfering X-ray waves for certain hkl) occur as compared to the single atom motif F-lattice crystals. Changes in Crystal System!
