X-Ray Scattering Lecture Series

X-Ray Scattering Lecture Series

These videos provide an introduction to modern techniques of X-ray diffraction. Most segments should be accessible to anyone who has taken an introductory course in basic physics, although the segments on Fourier transforms require some familiarity with calculus. They were prepared by Paul Heiney following the syllabus of a 5-week mini-course he has occasionally delivered to students and others at the University of Pennsylvania.
