XRD for grain size measurement

  1. Jan 26, 2016 #1

    Could you explain or prompt me to an article or source that mentions the advantages/setbacks from measuring the grain size of materials using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)?

    Have you read the wikipedia article for the Scherrer equation?

    Thanks for your reply. I have read about the Scherrer equation but I was wondering if there is anything more except for that as well.

    There are a few books out there, one of my favorites is Solid State Physics by Rook and Hall. Explains the concept of XRD and how to effectively use the Scherrer equation. Diffraction can inform you on a lot more than grain size.
