Difficulties in indexing monoclinic crystalline materials by wide angle X-ray diffraction

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

For monoclinic polycrystalline materials, how can we uniquely index the X-ray diffraction spectrum so that we can calculate the accurate lattice parameters a, b, c and beta? Due to the fact that there are four unknown variables coupled to determine d-spacings, we can not easily read out the lattice parameters until enough diffraction peaks positions are obtained correctly. This leads to two questions

1. How do we get the full diffraction peaks from a monoclinic polycrystalline sample if it is partially textured?

Experiment 1: Crystal Structure: X - Ray Diffraction

The X-Ray diffraction technique is used to determine the crystal structure and interatomic spacing of crystallinesamples through constructive interference of reflected x-ray beams.

Bragg's Law and X-Ray diffraction data, in combination with the expressions for interatomic spacing in terms of the lattice parameter and Miller indices for acrystal, can be utilized to identify crystal structures, determine lattice constants, and locate defects within astructure.
