In the first part of this chapter the principles of the white-beam, energy-dispersive method for X-ray diffraction are described with special emphasis on the use of synchrotron radiation. Expressions are given for the integrated intensity, the polarization factor and other correction factors. Applications in high-pressure X-ray diffraction are mentioned. In the second part of the chapter, neutron single-crystal Laue diffraction and neutron time-of-flight powder diffraction are discussed.
