Figure 4.5.2.1
Fibre diffraction geometry (see text). O is the origin of reciprocal space and OA is normal to the incident Xray beam. Reciprocal space is rotated about OY so that the Z axis is inclined at an angle β to OA. Q is the projection of P onto the plane containing the incident beam and OY.
