Microbeam X-ray diffraction in the analysis of minerals and materials (in Microbeam techniques in the earth sciences, Frank C. Hawthorne (editor) and R. F. Martin (editor))
The Canadian Mineralogist (April 1995) 33, Part 2: 313-322


Microbeam XRD is well established for use for in situ identification of fine-grained mineral aggregates in thin section, but recent developments allow coarse-grained aggregates and single crystals to be manipulated to give complete diffraction patterns. The use of microbeam XRD for the measurement of strain has the potential for important new studies of geological materials. This technique has been developed extensively by materials scientists, and its application in the Earth Sciences should give new insight into the extent and mechanisms of deformation in rocks and minerals.
