What is it about?

Surface acoustic wave propagation in solids leads to a sinusoidal modulation of a crystal lattice, which acts as a diffraction grating for X-ray radiation.

Why is it important?

It is important beacause it is usefull method to measure the acoustic wave amplitude, acoustic wave penetration depth and attenuation.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. This article also lead to rare disease groups contacting me and ultimately to a greater involvement in rare disease research.
