X-ray line profile analysis is an effective and non-destructive method for the characterization of the microstructure in crystalline materials. Supporting research in the area of x-ray line profile analysis is necessary in promoting further developments in this field.

X-Ray Line Profile Analysis in Materials Science aims to synthesize the existing knowledge of the theory, methodology, and applications of x-ray line profile analysis in real-world settings. This publication presents both the theoretical background and practical implementation of x-ray line profile analysis and serves as a reference source for engineers in various disciplines as well as scholars and upper-level students.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications of X-Ray Line Profile Analysis
  • Crystallite Size Broadening of Diffraction Line Profiles
  • Evaluation Methods of Line Profiles
  • Influence of Chemical Heterogeneities
  • Kinematical X-Ray Scattering Theory
  • Line Profiles Caused by Planar Faults
  • Peak Profile Evaluation for Thin Films
  • Strain Broadening of X-Ray Diffractional Peaks
  • X-Ray Line Profile Analysis for Single Crystals

Reviews and Testimonials

The author sets out to provide a survey of the field of X-ray line profile analysis (XLPA) for the materials sciences. The book covers basic and advanced XLPA, and attempts to fill in the gaps in the current literature. From my perspective, the author has done a reasonably good job. The book is divided into nine chapters. Each provides an introduction and a conclusion, which covers the content of the chapter nicely. Each chapter also has its own list of references, and a compilation of references is provided at the end.
