  Intensity of Diffraction      

Learning Objectives:

After completing this section you should be able to:

  • explain why non-primitive unit cells give rise to variations in the intensity of diffraction spots from different planes;
  • predict which forbidden reflections for any non-primitive crystal structure; and
  • write down the forbidden reflections for bcc and fcc structures.
