Schematic diffraction patterns for 3D IMSs with (a) 1D harmonic and (b) rectangular density modulation. The modulation direction is parallel to [{\bf a}_{2}]. In (a) only first-order satellites exist; in (b), all odd-order satellites can be present. In (c), the diffraction pattern of a harmonic displacive modulation along [{\bf a}_{1}] with amplitudes parallel to [{\bf a}_{2}^{*}] is depicted. Several reflections are indexed. The areas of the circles are proportional to the reflection intensities.
