and elegant method to simulate single order reflection profile based on 1-D paracrystalline
model has been proposed here. For variety of polymer films this approach has
been applied to compute microcrystalline parameters like crystallite size and
lattice strain. Other metallic oxide compounds are also analysed using this
approach. Employing this model, X-ray diffraction patterns from various polymer
samples have been analysed and corresponding microstructure parameters have
been reported in this article.
