Dynamical Theory of X-Ray Diffraction


Oxford University Press

This chapter describes a concise summary of the geometrical theory of X-ray diffraction, which is not the main topic of the book. The amplitude diffracted by a periodic electron distribution is calculated and the structure factor is introduced. The intensity diffracted by a small crystal is then calculated and the expression of the angular variations of the reflectivity discussed. Finally, the integrated intensity is calculated both in the reflection and the transmission geometries and the mosaic crystal model introduced.

Keywords:   geometrical theory, structure factor, reflectivity, integrated intensity, mosaic crystal model
