Principles of the Theory of X-Ray and Neutron Scattering
X rays (wavelengths from 0.5 to 2 Å), thermal neutrons (1–10 Å), and fast electrons (0.05–1 Å) are all used in diffraction studies of the three-dimensional structure of matter. Electron diffraction is not widespread in small-angle scattering investigations, which require a larger wavelength. Thus X rays and neutrons are used in practice only as a tool for structure determinations by the small-angle scattering technique.
