The effects of specimen granularity in the reflection method of powder diffractometry are isolated by comparing the fluorescent intensity from a large number of Cu powder specimens to that from a polished bulk sample. The fluorescence radiation is excited by monochromatic Mo Kα radiation. An approximate relationship between the reduction in the fluorescence intensity and that in the Bragg scattering is presented. The average chord lengths inside particles and pores are introduced as unambiguous… CONTINUE READING
