Diffuse Scattering and Defect Structure Simulations: A cook book using the program DISCUS

Reinhard B. Neder and Thomas Proffen


In recent years it has become apparent that merely knowing and understanding the average atomic structure is insufficient for comprehending material properties fully. Deviations from this average structure play an important role regarding these properties. To understand the defect or local structure one has to study diffuse scattering and go beyond the classic interpretation of Bragg intensities. Although there is an increasing interest in analysing disordered materials, as expressed by a number of recent text books, the practical aspects of this analysis are not yet widely known. A detailed s ... More

Keywords: disorder, diffraction, domains, stacking faults, refinements, local structure, nanoparticles
