Bragg_crystal.comp supercedes Perfect_Crystal.comp with major edits and corrections. For details see: The optics of focusing bent-crystal monochromators on X-ray powder diffractometers with application to lattice parameter determination and microstructure analysis, Marcus H. Mendenhall,* David Black and James P. Cline, J. Appl. Cryst. (2019). 52, https://doi.org/10.1107/S1600576719010951 Reads atomic formfactors from a data input file. The crystal code reflects ray in an ideal geometry, does not include surface imperfections or mosaicity The crystal planes from which the reflection is made must lie in the X-Z plane on the unbent crystal rotated by an angle alpha about the x axis with respect to the crystal surface. The crystal is positioned such that the long axis of the crystal surface coincides with z-axis. The angle between the Bragg planes and the crystal surface is alpha Off-axis rays fixed June 2015 so axial divergence corrections are right Inclusion of polarization and temperature dependence (via Debye-Waller factor), June-September 2015 Errors in complex arithmetic in DarwinReflectivity2 corrected, September 2015, MHM Symmetries for form factors corrected 20150924 Rotation code updated to use exact DarwinReflectivity Theta0, Thetah so answer is right even if alpha != 0. 20151009 MHM This code has been validated against both experimental data (2 channel-cut 3-bounce Si 440 crystals together in non-dispersive mode, at Cu kalpha) and against theoretical rocking rocking curves from XOP for Si220 at Sc kalpha and Si440 at Cu kalpha. Changelog: December 1, 2016: results for (1,1,1) etc. with complex form factor made to agree with XOP Notation follows Tadashi Matsushita and Hiro-O Hashizume, X-RAY MONOCHROMATORS.

alpha | rad | asymmetry angle (alpha=0 for symmetric reflection, ie the Bragg planes are parallel to the crystal surface) alpha is defined so that positive alpha reduces the Bragg angle to the plane i.e. alpha=Thetain grazes the planes. if alpha!=0, one should restrict to rays which have small kx values, since otherwise the alpha rotation is not around the diffraction axis. | 0.0 |

R0 | Reflectivity. Overrides the computed Darwin reflectivity. Probably only useful for debugging. | 0 | |
