Bragg law cell constant d

  1. Oct 25, 2013 #1
    How is the cell constant "d" related to the cell parameters? I know that for the smallest possible diffraction angle d is equal to the longest cell edge. Why?

    For the relationships, see See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bragg's_law

    Your second statement seems like a special case to me; I've never used it in my work. Do you have a reference for it?
