# Rotating Crystal Method for 2D Lattices Using Ewald's Circle

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Use the "lattice" setter bar to select from the five different types of 2D lattices. The wavelengths that satisfy Bragg's law are associated with specific radii of the Ewald's circle, which can be selected through the "Ewald radius" and "θ (rad)" setter bars.
