The constant refers to the number of atoms in a sample whose bulk mass in grams equals the relative atomic mass of the element.
Steffen Peiser (1957-present) Crystal growth, symmetry, and characterization for free-radical research, relative atomic mass values, and the fundamental constants.
While avoiding overlap with other papers in this volume, this article summarizes results from: 1) early work on crystallization as a method of purification, in contributions to sugar chemistry, and in solution growth of large crystals; 2) the NBS/ARPA Program of research on crystal growth and characterization; 3) the NBS Free-Radical Research Program; 4) the XRCD method as a direct path to relative atomic mass data and the fundamental physical constants; 5) the dynamical theory of x-ray diffraction; and 6) symmetry considerations such as are involved in the influence on crystals of mechanical stress or fields, and of point defect motion.
