Topological surface states have been observed on the cleaved surfaces of crystals of a handful of small band gap semiconductors. The goals of this review are to briefly introduce the physics of topological insulators to a chemical audience.

The advent of X-ray diffraction in the early twentieth century transformed crystallography to a highly interdisciplinary field which now includes nearly all life and physical sciences as well as materials science and engineering.

Crystallographic methods are used in chemistry for two main purposes: the identification of solid substances, and the determination of atomic configurations. There are also other applications. This book is a guide to these methods.

Intended to acquaint the reader with the theory of x-ray diffraction, the experimental methods involved, and the main applications. It stresses X-ray diffraction rather than metallurgy. Designed for beginners, not a reference for the advanced reader.
