Introduction
A novel Xray diffraction (XRD) theory is intensively revealed in
this book. The theory will extend present XRD view from one dimension
to two and three dimensions, enabling readers to see the invisible
characteristics inside materials. The twodimension (2D) theory
involves two angular variables of the Bragg angle Θ
and the angle α,
introduced to show the location of sample with respect to incident
Xray beam. Such variables are used to compose a set of general
mathematical models, which include a general diffraction intensity
equation, an azimuthangle equation and a common scan mode, as well
as the Bragg equation, for both of the surfaceand transmissionreflection
treatments. This book stresses upon the Xray analyses for natural
and synthetic materials. This book is dedicated to create a bridge
between basic texts and specialist works and should be helpful to
scholars studying XRD theory.
