crystallography

 [kris″tah-log´rah-fe]
the science dealing with the study of crystals.
x-ray crystallography the determination of the three-dimensional structure of molecules by means of diffraction patterns produced by x-rays of crystals of the molecules.

crys·tal·log·ra·phy

(kris'tăl-log'ră-fē),
The study of the shape and atomic structure of crystals.

crystallography

(kris″tă-log′ră-fē) [ crystal + -graphy]
The study of crystals. It is useful, for example, in examining complex molecules (e.g., DNA) or the components of kidney stones.
