new home for diffuse scattering google+ site

Single-crystal diffuse scattering is a powerful technique to investigate structural imperfection and short-range correlation in crystalline materials.

Here will be the new home for diffuse scattering Google site (, which was closed at April 2, 2019. This site targets at spreading the knowledge of single-crystal diffuse scattering. In many cases, single-crystal diffuse scattering patterns are very beautiful. We are interested in revealing the secrets of nature by studying these beauties, and we are also interested in sharing our excitement and knowledge with you.
