DSC and X-ray measurements as methods to detect lattice distortions
The homogeneous lattice distortions in the crystals of several cubic, tetragonal and hexagonal metals, estimated from literature data, can be principally detected by DSC measurements and X-ray studies. Therefore, using these methods, it should be possible to effortlessly modify a theory of inhomogeneous and homogeneous lattice distortions, which has existed for ca. 10 years, by further planned experimental examinations.
