A graphical interface program has been developed to determine the linear-polarization factor of a monochromatic X-ray beam when analyzing scattering from an amorphous object. An area coordinate detector is used in measurements. The change in intensity over the azimuthal angle at a constant diffraction angle is interpolated by a theoretical cosine dependence, which contains the polarization factor.
