Schematic representation of the 2D reciprocal-space embedding of the 1D sinusoidally modulated structure depicted in Figs.[link] and[link]. Main reflections are marked by filled circles and satellite reflections by open circles. The sizes of the circles are roughly related to the reflection intensities. The actual 1D diffraction pattern of the 1D MS results from a projection of the 2D reciprocal space onto the parallel space. The correspondence between 2D reciprocal-lattice positions and their projected images is indicated by dashed lines.
