The principle of this method measurement consists of monochromatic x-ray beam diffraction at the high diffraction angle 2[theta] on the surface of material (Majerik & Esse, 2009).
Using monochromatic X-ray beams and filters with multi-energy coated optics, the system produces high contrast images of screened items.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) program to characterize materials by means of this powerful probe began in the early 1980s, with the design, construction and commissioning of a monochromatic x-ray topography (1) station (X23A3) at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
From 1984, until it was closed in 2000, X23A3 was a premier monochromatic x-ray topography facility.
