Electron diffraction patterns from thin films of electroless nickel and copper, electroplated copper and a two layer system consisting of electroplated copper upon electroless nickel, are analyzed in terms of reduced radial distribution functions (reduced RDF) of the atoms. Computing theoretical reduced RDF and comparing them to the experimental ones, proves to be a practical means for determining the degree of crystallinity along with any strain (or lattice distortions) that may be present in a quasi amorphous lattice.
