    p7, last paragraph: “Therefore the spectrum of a frozen sample represents the summation of all
    possible orientations and is called a powder spectrum.”

    What I don’t understand: if orientations are randomised in a powder, how can you derive any information about the anisotropy? I would expect every absorption peak to be washed out over the entire spectrum, yielding a more or less constant aborption rate.
