New Methods for the Accurate Comparison of Lattice Parameters

Abstract

Two new methods of comparison of lattice parameters are described. The first method uses a double crystal diffractometer, fitted with a specimen rotation stage. Bragg peak positions of a silicon reference and the specimen crystal are recorded for the crystals at 0 and rotated 180° about the diffraction vector. From the mean Bragg positions the lattice parameters can, in principle, be compared to parts in 106. The second method is a variant on the above, using a triple axis diffractometer. It uses a beam conditioner and monochromator to define the incident wavevector ko, and an analyser crystal to define the diffracted wave vector kh. Only the analyser motion must be accurate and stable to the arc second level. We present a detailed error analysis for the case where reference and specimen Bragg angles differ significantly. Peak location to a confidence level of 1 arc second permits absolute, traceable lattice parameter determination to several parts in 106.
