Abstract X-ray diffraction provides a method for the determination of the strain and stress tensor in a polycrystalline sample. The knowledge of the unstrained lattice parameters is a prerequisite to calculate strains from measured reflection shifts. For thin films a model exists to find the unstrained lattice parameters and the strain or stress tensor together from the measured reflection positions. Title of program: WVM Catalogue Id: ADDM_v1_0 Nature of problem Calculate the strain tensor epsilon 2<->and the strain-free lattice parameters of a thin polycrystalline film from measured X-ray reflection positions.
