X-Ray Structure Determination of Polymers

The basic criteria for diffraction is that the wavelength of the incident electromagnetic radiation should be of the same order of magnitude as the distance between scattering particles. This for structure on an atomic scale X-rays are usually used since they have a wavelength ≃ 0.1mm (10−9m); although electrons and neutrons also fall in this wavelength range.
