Graduation date: 1968A design for an x-ray diffraction teaching device has been\ud presented. From the design a diffraction device has been constructed.\ud Based on the principles of the original work by Max von Laue,\ud a diffraction camera has been constructed using a diagnostic x-ray\ud machine. The diffraction camera provides a fast, safe, easy to\ud operate means of obtaining useable Laue diffraction patterns.\ud The analysis of the diffraction pattern is carried out using the\ud gnomonic projection. The diffraction spots are identifiable in the\ud gnomonic projection. Though the patterns lack perfection, they provide\ud visible proof to the student that x-ray diffraction has taken\ud place.\ud The safety of the diffraction device is assured through proper\ud shielding. The leakage rates do not exceed the limits set by the\ud National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement
