Bicrystallography is the complete geometric description of bicrystal having an interface. It can be applied in the study of interface/surface structure, thin film growth and small particles. Two methods are used in bicrystal diffraction experiments the plan view CBED technique and the analysis involving edge on interface parallel to the electron beam. Plan view CBED is used to determine loss of symmetry caused by rigid body translation. While edge on geometry of interfaces is used in nanodiffraction experiments.
