Scope note: The scattering of x-rays by matter, especially crystals, with accompanying variation in intensity due to interference effects. Analysis of the crystal structure of materials is performed by passing x-rays through them and registering the diffraction image of the rays (CRYSTALLOGRAPHY, X-RAY). (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Annotation: application to study of crystal structure = CRYSTALLOGRAPHY, X-RAY; for SAXS (small angle X-ray scattering) coordinate with SCATTERING, SMALL ANGLE
