Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal seeks to re-establish the X-ray topographic microprobe instrument facility at the University of Leeds and to use it to examine, in a selfconsistent manner, growth sector-dependant changes to both the crystallographic structure and the associated lattice defects associated with the action of habit modifying additives in a number of representative crystal growth systems. The new instrument will be used to probe micro-crystallographic aspects (such as distortion to crystal symmetry), via X-ray multiple diffraction, and relate these in a spatially resolved manner, via X-ray topography, to the crystal defect structure in crystals doped with known habit modifiers.
