Studying Structure of Metallic Superlattices by "Symmetric" and "Asymmetric" X-rAY Diffraction

  • G. Gladyszewski (a1), Ph. Goudeau (a2), K.F. Badawi (a2) and A. Naudon (a2)


"Symmetric" and "asymmetric" x-ray diffraction measurements are proposed as a tool for quantitative and complete determination of the superlattice structure. A general procedure which takes into account the atomic structure of the sublayers as well as structural disorder are presented. The "asymmetric" geometry using the "sin2psi" method is particularly emphasized.
