Dr Erica Bithell Fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge.
We can see diffraction phenomena in ocean waves, in moonlight, on our DVDs and on our credit cards. The effects of diffraction are
beautiful and easily demonstrated, but what use are they?
In the International Year of Crystallography we will find out how this
phenomenon can turn crystal structures inside - out and open a window on the ultra-small.
