By taking two successive Debye-Scherrer-Hull pictures of a powder specimen at two different temperatures, one obtains on a single film a direct temperature shift of the diffraction pattern of the substance. An interval of 150°C or greater will generally suffice to produce easily measurable temperature shifts that can be related to the anisotropy of a crystalline substance. A systematic treatment of the various crystal systems has shown that the first four systems (cubic, tetragonal, hexagonal, and orthorhombic) can be indexed in a straightforward manner. Two cases of the monoclinic system: (1) ∂β/∂T=0 and (2) αb/2=(1/b)(∂b/∂T)≫αa≫αccot β∂β/∂T can be solved without time-consuming mathematical calculations.
