Crystal diffraction

  1. Nov 26, 2011 #1
    Hi, this is my first post.
    I have a problem to solve:

    "Given the plane (1 1 1) of 3 lattice sc, bcc and fcc, says in which case there is diffraction"

    I hope that someone helps me...
    Thanks for helpers

    You have to calculate the structure factor of the (111) for the 3 structures. The one(s) with non-zero structure factors will produce diffraction a line.

    A plane will always give rise to diffraction, irrespective of the type of lattice.

    Yes, it's right. I found the solution! Thank you!
