Number of pages: 312
The advent of X-ray diffraction in the early twentieth century transformed crystallography from an area of scientific inquiry largely limited to physics, mineralogy, and mathematics, to a highly interdisciplinary field which now includes nearly all life and physical sciences as well as materials science and engineering.

Topological surface states have been observed on the cleaved surfaces of crystals of a handful of small band gap semiconductors. The goals of this review are to briefly introduce the physics of topological insulators to a chemical audience.

Intended to acquaint the reader with the theory of x-ray diffraction, the experimental methods involved, and the main applications. It stresses X-ray diffraction rather than metallurgy. Designed for beginners, not a reference for the advanced reader.

Crystallography is a fascinating division of the entire study of mineralogy. We hope to bring you to a greater appreciation of natural mineral crystals and their forms by giving you some background and understanding into the world of crystallography.

Crystallographic methods are used in chemistry for two main purposes: the identification of solid substances, and the determination of atomic configurations. There are also other applications. This book is a guide to these methods.
