Explain how time of flight is used to measure lattice constants

The lattice constant is actually dimension of unit cells in a crystal lattice. Three dimenions are a, b, and c. in case of cubic constants are equal to a only

generally, ToF is a method used to measure the distance between a sensor and an object (or lattice plane), when signal emmited from sensor reflected by an object based on the time taken by signal. The total time taken from senor to target and target to sensor is time of flight.

so distance is=time of flight/2 * velocity of signal

generally x ray are used for lattice dimension determination with and robust algorithm for higher accuracy.
