X-RAY DIFFRACTION THEORY :-
X-RAY wavelength = 10-2-10nm (10-104pm)
X-ray diffraction is a science of determing arrangements of atoms within the crystals in which beam of X-ray is scattered by atom in the crystal.
X-ray crystallography is based upon transition of inner shell e–
Whenever a fast moving e–impings on an atom it may knockout an e completely from one of the inner shells of that atom.
Following the loss of inner shell e– one of the outer e– will fall into the vacant orbital with the simultaneous emission of X-ray photon.
The energy of this X-ray photons is equal to difference in the energy between 2 levels involved.
K-series :- if k shell loses e– then e– will fall from higher energy level if it fall from L then it is called as kα series.& if it falls from M then it is called kβ series and so on.
L-series :- if L-shell loses e– then if e– will from M then it is called as Lα series if from N then Lβ series.
If an incident X-ray beam encounters a crystal lattice, general scattering occurs. Althrough most scattering in occurs.Althrough most scattering interferes with itself and is eliminated (destructive interference) diffraction occurs when scattering in a certain direction is in phase with scattered ray from other atomic planes.
Under this conditions the reflections combine to form new enhanced wave fronts that mutually reinforce each other The relation by which diffraction occurs is known as the bragg law or equation. Because each crystalline material has a characteristic atomic structure,it will diffract X-ray in a unique characteristic pattern.
BRAGG`S equations is nλ=2d
- n= order of diffraction
- λ = wave length
- = glancing angle
BRAGG`S equations give the relationship between :-
- Wave length of x-ray
- Interplanner distance in crystal
- Angle of reflection
