Optical Simulation of Debye-Scherrer Crystal Diffraction
Logiurato, F.; Gratton, L. M.; Oss, S.
Physics Teacher, v46 n2 p109-112 Feb 2008
In this paper we describe and discuss simple, inexpensive optical experiments used to simulate x-ray and electron diffraction according to the Debye-Scherrer theory. The experiment can be used to address, at the high school level, important subjects related to fundamental quantum and solid-state physics.
