Diffraction and Scattering of Ionizing Radiations


The theory of X-ray diffraction from a nonideal lateral crystal with a trapezoidal cross section in the Born (kinematical) approximation has been developed. Distortions of the crystal structure are caused by continuous (nonrandom) lattice strains and randomly distributed defects. Continuous lattice strain is a combination of elastic bending of atomic planes and a linear variation in the interplanar spacing with increasing distance from the crystal surface. Within the method of triple-crystal X-ray diffraction, numerical simulation of the angular intensity distribution of coherent and diffuse scattering has been performed for different continuous and random lattice strains in the lateral and vertical directions.
