The reciprocal lattice explorer

The most recent advance in single crystal cameras is the Explorer, invented by Wolfel. This instrument is a combination of a Precession camera and a de Jong camera. This combination produces a complete and undistorted survey of the reciprocal lattice. (The de Jong method records the same reflections as does the Weissenberg method, but with a different instrument geometry that produces a distortion-free result.)
