MATLAB and reciprocal space mapping – small update.

Well, I’m one of those guys who believes a picture is usually worth a ton of words. I’ve got a few images to share here on the matlab code I’ve been working on for reciprocal space mapping in MATLAB. I’m still not 100% on my code right now, so I’m not sharing it for the time-being. In particular, I use an import function for .x00 slices for two-axis scans in the Panalytical/Philips XPert system. If you are using XRDML, skip the files for .x00 import that I have in other posts on this blog. In anycase, without much explanation here are the images…

    I have not any comment, but I have got a difficult on how to manipulate the reciprocal by using Newton-Raphson method in MATLAB. So help me, on how to operate the reciprocal of 7. Thank you.

    Hi Abdulaziz,

    I’m sorry to say that I’m currently not working with any root-finding code. I had hoped to at some point paint the highest peak of the 3D reflection, however, I haven’t pursued that code at the moment. I’m sorry I can’t be of help! I hope you can find the answers to your difficulties somehow soon!

    Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment! :)

A Quick Introduction...

I'm a graduate student (PhD Candidate) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I've studied and researched in two fields of Materials Science and Engineering (Polymers and Semiconductors). My interests are as diverse as my musical tastes and I usually have my hand in some crazy project during my free time.

I'm available for consulting and have access to a world-renown materials research user-facility supported by the D.O.E. If you would like to know more, please contact me.
