1996). As has long been known, the reticular organization of crystalline materials has the property of diffracting (or scattering) incident X-rays, that is, each reticular plane diffracts X-rays in a specific way. If a very thin collimated beam of monochromatic X-rays goes through a sample and the diffracted (or scattered) rays are directed by a suitable apparatus to a photographic plate, they will produce, besides a central spot arising from non-diffracted rays, a series of spots (or semicircles or circles, according to the size and orientation of crystals) caused by the X-rays which, because they are in phase, have a particularly strong effect (Fig.
