Modern condensed matter physics began in when Laue, Friedrich, and Knipping presented a paper on the diffraction of x-rays by crystals.
They proved that crystals are periodic lattices of atoms, and ever since then this periodicity has been invaluable to studies of condensed matter. In the experiment you observe first hand the diffraction of x-rays, and will learn about crystallography. The equipment is a commercial instrument all in one package. Note: Laue Back is no longer available.
Two different methods of x-ray diffraction are used. One is Laue back reverse direction reflection, in which the back-scattered x-rays from a crystal are observed. A broad band of x-ray frequencies is used. The other is the Debye-Scherrer method in which a polycrystalline sample is exposed to a monochromatic x-ray beam. You only will be doing metal and salt powder pictures. We recommend that you complete the lab on consecutive days. For more information, see the Advanced Lab Syllabus. Comments: E-mail Don Orlando.

To start, look at Wood and Cullity.
X-Ray Diffraction: In Crystals, Imperfect Crystals, and Amorphous Bodies
Cullity is the main reference for this lab--it is clear and contains, practically speaking, nearly everything that you need to know, including examples of the calculations that you are asked to do. Kittel is probably better for the theory of diffraction and crystal structure, and Guinier is a more advanced text. You should keep a laboratory notebook. This will aid you when you write your report. The theoretical basis for this experiment is quite simple. If a solid is represented by a collection of regularly spaced planes containing regularly spaced atoms, then the condition for a sharp maximum in the diffraction pattern of incident radiation is given by the Bragg condition:.
Although this model for a solid is not strictly correct see Kittel , it is very useful and gives the correct diffraction condition. In this experiment you learn to make, manipulate and detect X-Rays. With the Debye-Scherrer method, you'll use monochromatic beam, polycrystalline powder target and film camera to measure diffraction angles, and from that infer crystal properties. Some long powder camera exposures overnight, but not over the weekend might be required, so sign up for consecutive days.
Your goals for this lab are to learn about x-ray diffraction, and in particular the Powder method of measuring diffraction. You will use the Powder method to determine the crystal structure and lattice parameters for several crystal samples. Useful Substances. Sample Preparation PDF. The Debye-Sherrer x-ray camera powder camera requires that a cylindrically shaped sample be placed and rotated at the center of the cylindrical camera.
As the x-ray beam is less than 2 mm wide as the x-rays impinge upon the sample, the sample need only be 3 mm in any dimension. Sample preparation is critical for producing the high-quality x-ray films that can be used to determine the crystal structure and the lattice parameters. There are several techniques to fabricate such a sample of which the following as just a few. Which technique works the best depends on the material, x-ray energy, and operator skill. However, as the x-ray energies are fixed, and the samples are known, operator skill during sample preparation has a significant impact on the quality of the results.
Figure 1 shows detailed views of the powder camera sample area. Removing the disc-shaped camera lid will produce the same view. The sample diagrammed in red, needs to be of the appropriate size and appropriately attached to the sample holder. The sample spindle can be rotated by spinning the pulley on the camera back. The sample is a polycrystalline power, which must be contained somehow and attached to the sample holder.
In the figure 1 illustration, the powder sample, shown in red is contained in a thin sphere black border around the red sample , and attached to the sample holder with chewing gum blue-green or other appropriate adhesive.
Before information about the sample structure and the physics therein , other design parameters need to be determined and physical insight is necessary here as well. The first design parameter of interest is D, the diameter of the sample through which the x-rays pass, diffract, and are absorbed. If D is too small, most of the x-rays go around the sample resulting in very long exposures. If D is too large, the forward x-ray diffraction will be absorbed in sample.
It should be clear then that a polycrystalline Pb sample can have a much smaller D than a polycrystalline Al sample. It should also be clear that the x-rays pass through whatever is holding the powder together a balloon in this hypothetical case and this whatever could also diffract x-rays and will absorb x-rays. Note that the air in the camera absorbs x-rays how much?
It should be obvious that a Pb balloon would be a poor choice to contain the powder, whereas a thin plastic or rubber balloon might be an acceptable choice. Figure 2 shows various sample preparation methods contain and attach for the powder camera. In practice, practical side of physics the sample needs to something that can be prepared using gloves good safety practice by someone aspiring physicist with reasonable dexterity sans coffee in a less than an hour and at reasonable cost.
Reasonable cost is usually synonymous with either cheap materials consumables, as in lab fees or re-useable material like the sample holder. We are now using the plastic shrink tubing method for making samples. It has been found they make the best samples and are easy to make. There is a practical size limit to the paint roller technique. Above 0. For samples with D over 2 mm, the sample holder is modified so that a hollow plastic tube can be attached. These tubes are heat shrinkable, that is, they contract and harden on exposure to about C.
There are literally hundreds of different types of heat-shrinkable tubing. This clear tubing is probably Kynar for x-ray absorption use any convenient hydrocarbon with a 0. The opaque tubing is probably polyolefin. Using a razor blade, cut a 12 mm length of tubing, square on both ends, and slip it over the sample holder. Using a creased piece of paper or foil as a guide, fill the tube with the sample.
Tap the side of the tube until about 2 mm of tube is unfilled, then slip the cap over the tube. If the sample is not axially aligned to the sample holder, it may be moved slightly with tool pressure before it cools. If the sample preparation is unacceptable, use the razor blade to separate the tubing from the sample holder and lid and try again.
