Diffuse Scattering—the use of off-specular X-Rays and neutrons from surfaces and interfaces—has grown rapidly as a tool for characterizing the surface properties of materials and related fundamental structural properties. It has proven to be especially useful in the understanding of local properties within materials. This new book reflects the efforts of physicists and materials scientists around the world who have helped to refine the techniques and applications of diffuse scattering. Major topics specifically covered include:

Rozaliya I. Barabash

Rozaliya Barabash joined the X-ray Scattering and Microscopy group of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2000. She received her PhD from the National Technical University of Ukraine, Kiev (1972) and then worked there as an associate professor. She collaborated with Prof. M.A. Krivoglaz to study diffuse scattering from inhomogeneously distributed and correlated defects in 2D and 3D crystals.

Gene E. Ice

Gene Ice received a BS in Physics (Harvey Mudd College, 1972) and a PhD. in physics (U. of Oregon, 1977). Dr. Ice joined the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (1979) to work with Cullie Sparks to design a synchrotron radiation beamline for diffuse x-ray scattering. From 1984-1989, he acted as local spokesperson for the ORNL beamline X14 at the National Synchrotron Light Source. It was during this time that Dr. Ice helped develop the 3λ method for precision diffuse scattering measurements of static atomic displacements in binary alloys. In 1989 Dr.
