### Core-and-shell nanoparticles

Scattering from cuboidal core-shell particles.

• The sample is made of core-shell particles whose outer and inner shells are boxes with dimensions $L_1 = W_1 = 16$ nm, $H_1 = 8$ nm and $L_2 = W_2 = 12$ nm, $H_2 = 7$ nm, respectively, where $L_i$, $W_i$ and $H_i$ are the length, width and height of box $i$.
• The smaller box is positioned so that the centres of the bottom faces of both particles coincide.
• The simulation is run using the Born approximation. There is no substrate and no interference between the different scattered beams.
• The planar distribution of the particles is diluted and random.
• The incident wavelength is equal to 0.1 nm.
• The incident angles are $\alpha_i = 0.2 ^{\circ}$ and $\varphi_i = 0^{\circ}$.
