### Rotated Pyramids

Scattering from a monodisperse distribution of rotated pyramids.

This example illustrates how the in-plane rotation of non-radially symmetric particles influences the scattering pattern.

• The sample is made of pyramids deposited on a substrate.
• Each pyramid is characterized by a squared-base side length of $10$ nm, a height of $5$ nm, and a base angle $\alpha$ equal to $54.73^{\circ}$.
• These particles are rotated in the $(x, y)$ plane by $45^{\circ}$.
• There is no interference between the scattered waves.
• The wavelength is equal to 0.1 nm.
• The incident angles are $\alpha_i = 0.2 ^{\circ}$ and $\varphi_i = 0^{\circ}$.
