A dynamical Bragg equation for high-order Laue zone reflections

Abstract

A dynamically corrected Bragg equation for high-order Laue zone (HOLZ) reflections is derived directly from the Bloch wave formalism instead of the geometric argument used to deduce the kinematical Bragg condition. It differs from the kinematical Bragg equation by replacing the plane wave vector in the kinematical equation with the Bloch wave vectors. This dynamical equation reduces to the kinematical equation when the crystal potential is zero. It also demonstrates the occurrence of dynamical shifts for the HOLZ reflections but their absence for the zero-order Laue zone (ZOLZ) reflections in the symmetrical Laue case.
