Filings from a molybdenum rod, pressed into a briquet, were used as the cold worked sample. Satisfactory peak shapes for 110, 200, 211, 220, and 310 were obtained with filtered CuKα. Peak shapes for 400 and 422 obtained with filtered MoKα were not satisfactory, partly because of fluorescence radiation. Peaks were recorded with a Norelco diffractometer, and instrumental broadening corrected by the Stokes method. The Fourier coefficients indicate approximately isotropic incoherent domains L=260 A, and strains inversely as Young's modulus. Molybdenum is similar to tungsten in that there is no evidence for faulting on (211) as a result of cold work.
