The integrated intensity is the ratio of the total energy recorded in the counter when the crystal is rocked to the intensity of the incident beam. It is proportional to the area under the line profile: [I_{hi} = {\textstyle\int\limits_{-\infty}^{+\infty}} I_{h} \hbox{ d} (\Delta \theta). \eqno(]

The integration was performed by von Laue (1960)[link]. Using ([link], ([link] and ([link] gives [I_{hi} = A {\textstyle\int\limits_{0}^{2\pi t\Lambda_{L}^{-1}}} J_{0} (z) \hbox{ d}z,] where [J_{0}(z)] is the zeroth-order Bessel function and [A = {R\lambda^{2} |C F_{h}| (\gamma)^{1/2} \over 2V \sin 2\theta}.] Fig.[link] shows the variations of the integrated intensity with [t/\Lambda_{L}].

The integration was performed for absorbing crystals by Kato (1955)[link]. The integrated intensity in this case is given by [\eqalign{I_{hi} &= A |F_{h}/F_{\bar{h}}| \exp \left[-1/2 \mu_{o} t (\gamma_{o}^{-1} + \gamma_{h}^{-1})\right]\cr &\quad \times \left[\textstyle\int\limits_{0}^{2\pi t\Lambda_{L}^{-1}} J_{0}(z) \hbox{ d}z - 1 + I_{0} (\zeta)\right],}] where [\zeta = \mu_{o} t \left\{\left[\left|C\right|^{2} |F_{ih}/F_{io}|^{2} \cos^{2} \varphi + (\gamma_{h} - \gamma_{o})/(4\gamma_{o} \gamma_{h})\right] / (\gamma_{o} \gamma_{h})\right\}^{1/2}] and [I_{0} (\zeta)] is a modified Bessel function of zeroth order.
