Wide angle X-ray scattering
Post: #1

Wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) is an X-ray diffraction technique that is often used to determine the crystalline structure of polymers. This technique refers to the analysis of Bragg Peaks scattered to wide angles, implies that they are caused by sub-nanometer sized structures.Wide angle x-ray scattering is the same technique as Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) with the distance from sample to the detector is shorter and thus diffraction maxima at larger angles are observed.The technique is a time-honored but a somewhat out-of-favor technique for the determination of degree of crystallinity of polymer samples. A diffraction technique for polycrystalline films where only crystallites diffract which are parallel to the substrate surface. The diffraction pattern generated allows to determine the chemical composition or phase composition of the film, the texture of the film (preferred alignment of crystallites), the crystallite size and presence of film stress. According to this method the sample is scanned in a wide angle X-ray goniometer, and the scattering intensity is plotted as a function of the 2 angle. X ray diffraction is a non destructive method of characterization of solid materials. When X-rays are directed in solids they will scatter in predictable patterns based upon the internal structure of the solid. A crystalline solid consists of regularly spaced atoms (electrons) that can be described by imaginary planes. The distance between these planes is called the d-spacing. The intensity of the d-space pattern is directly proportional to the number of electrons (atoms) that are found in the imaginary planes. Every crystalline solid will have a unique pattern of d-spacings (known as the powder pattern), which is a finger print for that solid. In fact solids with the same chemical composition but different phases can be identified by their pattern of d-spacings.and which is also called Wide angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD)
