Abstract : The X-ray diffractometer system purchased under the grant consists of an X-ray generator and associated equipment for determination of degree of crystallinity, crystallite size and lattice distortion in nano-and micro-crystalline metals and composites; identification of crystalline phases, precision measurement of lattice constants, and determination of phase transformation temperatures in metals, ceramics, and composites at 25-1400 degrees Celsius; determination of grain orientations, preferred orientation, and crystallographic texture by Laue back reflection pole figure mapping.
