publications. Solid materials leave distinct patterns similar to fingerprints if they are X-rayed. X-ray powder diffractometry is an established technique used to "fingerprint" and identify samples such as moon rocks or pharmaceutical ingredients. This book provides an up-to-date, thorough introduction to the field, with clear, concise descriptions of both theory and practice.
