X-ray crystallography encompasses the structural characterization of crystalline materials by means of X-rays. This is done most commonly by X-ray diffraction, which can be applied to monocrystalline materials or heterostructures, as well as to polycrystalline materials, where the later is referred to as powder X-ray diffraction.

How are X-rays focused? Specifically in XRD. Well do they even focus X-rays in XRD?
X-ray diffraction (is it possible?)
Is crystal diffraction actually diffraction?
If I take an XRD image of a single cubic unit cell, would the diffraction pattern simply be its reciprocal lattice?
