X-ray diffraction, also known as XRD, is a method of non-destructive testing to analyze fluids, powders, crystals, and more. X-ray diffraction answers the question, “what is it?” Its simplest explanation, XRD uses a diffracted intensities and angles to identify the material from a diffraction pattern.
The pattern is similar to a fingerprint. After a diffraction pattern is discovered it is compared to a database of known patterns until an identification of the material is made. Identification is made based on the arrangement of the atoms.
Besides compound identification, x-ray diffraction can identify the strain, preferred orientation, structure, and grain size of the materials.
