Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 188)


Diffuse scattering of fast electrons (in the 10 keV range) from crystals is in general caused by deviations of the crystalline structure from the regular periodic atomic arrangement or by inelastic scattering. Temperature diffuse scattering (TDS) especially is caused by the thermal vibration of the atoms around their equilibrium positions.
