Abstract

This paper reports and discusses the results of a computer modeling study on powder diffraction profile analysis for crystallite size and strain of polycrystalline materials. The results of this computer modeling show that if the spans of diffraction profiles in reciprocal space (1/d) are not carefully chosen, an overestimation on size and an underestimation on strain may result in analysis by both the Warren-Averbach and the Hall-Williamson methods. A general way to eliminate such errors based on profile fitting and regeneration is presented and discussed in this paper.
