Diffraction Diagram

 

Fig.1 (TOP) Synchrotron X-ray diffraction data collected on an online MAR image plate from fibers of Glaucocystis cellulose IR on station ID2A at the ESRF, Grenoble, France. (BOTTOM) A 3D fit of the Bragg intensities, done using custom-written software that takes into account fiber texture. The images have been remapped into cylindrical reciprocal space with the fiber axis vertical.

 

Fig.2 (TOP) Neutron fiber diffraction patterns collected from two fibers of Glaucocystis cellulose IR, one hydrogenated (LEFT-HAND QUADRANT) and the other deuterated (RIGHT-HAND QUADRANT). The BOTTOM QUADRANTS show 3D fits of the Bragg intensities, done using custom-written software that takes into account fiber texture. The images have been remapped into cylindrical reciprocal space with the fiber axis vertical.
