Intensities and Intensity Statistics

  • Mark Ladd
  • Rex Palmer


The measurement of the intensity of a diffracted X-ray beam can be carried out photographically, by camera techniques, but almost always today by quantum counting, with diffractometer instruments. We can measure either a peak intensity or an integrated intensity, the latter parameter being preferred for the expression of the intensity of X-ray reflection.
