Visualizing Materials Science

Three close up images of the larger diffracted image also pictured.

Interactive simulation of selected-area diffraction. The information from one spot (top row, middle) of the diffraction image (bottom) of a twin boundary (top left) is used to selectively reconstruct (top right) an image that contains that spot’s periodicity. (Image by Prof. W. Craig Carter.)
