Detector Resolution Function

Scattering from a monodisperse distribution of cylindrical particles with a Gaussian resolution function of the detectors.

  • The sample is made of cylindrical particles randomly deposited on a substrate. It is similar to Cylinders in DWBA with the additional resolution function of the detectors.
  • The radii and heights of the cylinders are equal to 5 nm.
  • There is no interference between the scattered waves.
  • The detector resolution function is a two-dimensional Gaussian with the same width for the x- and y-axis: σx = σy= 0.0025°.
  • The wavelength is equal to 1 Å.
  • The incident angles are αi=0.2° and Φi=0°.
