Abstract : Certain x-ray diffraction experiments are erformed in order to find comparative data, uch as the shift of x-ray peaks due to changes in cold work or temperature. It is usually necessary, in these experiments, to traverse the large angular distances between x-ray peaks without resetting the goniometer to avoid the errors produced by repositioning. A simple device is described which eliminates this timeconsuming traverse without loss of accuracy. (Author)
