Quantitative Analyses of Precession Diffraction Data for a Large Cell Oxide

  • Christopher S. Own (a1), Arun K. Subramanian (a1) and Laurence D. Marks (a1)

Kinematical and two-beam calculations have been conducted and are compared to experimental precession data for the large unit cell crystal La4Cu3MoO12. Precession electron diffraction intensities are found to exhibit approximate two-beam behavior and demonstrate clear advantages over conventional SADP intensities for use in structure solution.
