X-Ray Diffraction of Co/MgO (111)

An x-ray diffractometer was used in the study of a thin film of cobalt on a sample of magnesium oxide. The sample was found to have four cubic lattice parameters. These correspond to 4.21▒0.01┼ (MgO), 3.42▒0.01┼ (Co), 8.16▒0.01┼ (hydrated MgO), 6.66▒0.01┼ (unknown). The manner in which to find the lattice parameters was proven through the verification of an ôunknownö salt sample.
