Students will learn how scientists use a process called X-ray diffraction to figure out the structure of things that are too small to see such as atoms, molecules, and crystal structures.This lab will help students understand how light is bent into different directions as it interacts with small objects, especially those on the nanoscale (1-100nm). Students will create and explore their own diffraction gratings.
