X-Ray Dynamical Diffraction Analogue of Talbot Effect in Case of Incident Finite Front Wave

  • Published:
Journal of Contemporary Physics (Armenian Academy of Sciences) Aims and scope


X-ray dynamical diffraction Talbot effect in perfect crystals is studied. The effect is analyzed for the case of incident final front wave. Some peculiarities of effect are revealed, expressions for the Talbot effect and exact Talbot effect are found. The results are compared with the ones obtained earlier in a diffracted beam in case of incident infinite front wave.
