I'm trying to figure out the missing step here, in a problem about X-ray crystallography. I am referring to the attached image: In the image, $A =$ electron density, $Z =$ distance traveled, ...
I understand that in general if we're adding more planes of atoms (increasing thickness of sample) then the intensity would increase because we have more constructive interference. But isn't there a ...
I read in a government website that reflecting an x-ray from a parabolic mirror followed by a reflection from a hyperbolic mirror results in focusing the x-ray, but this was for astronomical purposes. ...
I just read in some class notes for a crystallography class that there are no refractive lenses for X-rays because the index of refraction of most materials is close to 1. Is the index of refraction ...
