Structural information in diffuse diffraction patterns

J. H. Konnert
1974 Environmental Health Perspectives  
The radiation diffraction pattern for amorphous materials requires special analysis for information on atomic groupings. Powdered crystalline material may also give diffuse patterns requiring this type of analysis. Absence of a sharp diffraction pattern does not necessarily indicate absence of the material. Examples are given for chrysotile and powdered chrysotile.
