Applications of Neutron Powder Diffraction by Erich H Kisi
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first book covering the theory, practicalities, and the extensive applications of neutron powder diffraction in materials science, physics, chemistry, mineralogy and engineering. Various highlight applications of neutron powder diffraction are outlined in the introduction, then the theory is developed and instrumentation described sufficient for a return to the applications. The book covers the use of neutron powder diffraction in the solution (hard) and refinement (more straightforward) of crystal and magnetic structures, applications of powder diffraction in quantitative phase analysis, extraction of microstructural information from powder diffraction patterns, and the applications of neutron diffraction in studies of elastic properties and for the measurement of residual stress. Additional theory to underpin these various applications is developed as required. Much of the material should be accessible to senior undergraduates in science and engineering, as well as to graduate students and more senior researchers with an interest in the technique.

Author Biography

Professor Christopher Howard School of Engineering The University of Newcastle Australia After completing a Master's degree exploring the Mossbauer Effect, and a Doctorate in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Prof. Howard was recruited to the Solid State Physics Section of the then Australian Atomic Energy Commission (now the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation). Over the course of the next thirty years, he was largely responsible for the development and application of high resolution neutron powder diffraction at the HIFAR reactor, and indeed he led the ANSTO Neutron Scattering effort over a period of about fifteen years. His focus in more recent years has been on the systematics of the crystallography of the mineral perovskite and related materials, an endeavour in which high resolution neutron powder diffraction has continued to play a part. Prof. Howard took up his present appointment in Newcastle at the end of 2007.
