Abstract

THERE are two main ways in which X-rays have become of immense practical importance in the industrial field. The great penetrating power has been utilized in the technique of radiography for the examination of what may be described as the macro-structure of solid bodies and objects. In X-ray crystal analysis the diffraction of X-rays by the regular pattern of atoms in a crystal has been utilized to elaborate and supplement chemical and other physical methods of examining the nature and properties of a material.
