Symposium: Neutron and X-Ray Studies of Advanced Materials VI: Diffraction Centennial and Beyond

The selection of the manuscripts in the special topic “Neutron and X-ray Diffraction Studies of Advanced Materials VI: Centennial and Beyond” is based on the material presented during the TMS 2013 Annual Meeting, March 3 to 7, 2013, in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

In 2012/13, the diffraction community celebrated 100 years since the prediction of X-ray diffraction by M. Laue, and following his suggestion, the first beautiful diffraction experiment by W. Friedrich and P. Knipping. To acknowledge the importance of the discovery of diffraction, the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO) declared 2014 the International Year of Crystallography. The significance of techniques based on the analysis of the diffraction of X-rays, neutrons, electrons, and Mössbauer photons discovered later has continued to increase in the past 100 years.

The aim of the symposium was to provide a forum for discussion of using state-of-the-art neutron and X-ray scattering techniques to...
