X-ray diffraction studies of laser-shocked crystals

Abstract:

When materials are shock compressed, they undergo changes in microstructure that act to relieve the large shear stresses associated with the compression. The plasticity mechanisms that mediate this transition such as slip and twinning remain poorly understood, especially in the case of polycrystals, which make up the majority of real world materials. This work presents a theoretical outline for analysing Debye-Scherrer diffraction experiments under large strains. A method is demonstrated t...
