Abstract

A general formula is derived for the spectral density distribution in the far zone, produced by the diffraction of a beam of any state of spatial coherence on a medium with a spatially periodic structure. The formula may be used to determine the structure of crystals from the diffraction of partially coherent x-ray beams.
