diffsims.utils.shape_factor_models.lorentzian_precession(excitation_error, max_excitation_error, r_spot, precession_angle)[source]#

Intensity profile factor for a precessed beam assuming a Lorentzian intensity profile for the un-precessed beam. This is equation (10) in reference [1].

  • excitation_error (array-like or float) – The distance (reciprocal) from a reflection to the Ewald sphere

  • max_excitation_error (float) – The distance at which a reflection becomes extinct

  • r_spot (array-like or float) – The distance (reciprocal) from each reflection to the origin

  • precession_angle (float) – The beam precession angle in radians; the angle the beam makes with the optical axis.


intensity_factor – Vector representing the rel-rod factor for each reflection

Return type:

array-like or float
