I am new to this forum and a novice with XRD data analysis.
I have created some powder samples with known amounts of amorphous silica that contain varying degrees of crystalline material (cristobalite) at 0,20,40,60,80,100% intervals.
The XRD spectra are as expected with a varying degree of an amorphous background, with the crystalline peaks prominating. I have read that it is possible to calculate from the spectra the degree of cystallinity by calculating the ratio of the intergrated peaks to the integrated total area.
Is this still the best method to use, and also how would I best go about doing this. I have Match! data analysis software currently, but cannot figure out how it is done with this software.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
