Have FDTD methods made inroads into dynamical simulation of electron and/or X-ray scattering by crystals?

I'm afraid this question might be too basic or too naive or both, but here goes! For optical diffraction by periodic nano-structures (gratings, semiconductor manufacturing metrology) the rigorous ...

How to calculate small and wide-angle X-ray scattering spectra for the hydration shell restricted by a distance radius criteria

My main aim is to extract the SWAXS spectra for the hydration shell surrounding a solvated molecule and I am unfamiliar with the idea of excluded solvent volume. I tried looking online but many ...

How to analyse structure factors calculated from a mixture of isotropic amorphous substrates

I am looking for a way to computationally analyse the interactions between two molecular species (as solute and solvent) in an isotropic mixture using X-ray scattering. Is there a guideline as to how ...
