Title: Dynamical Diffraction Theory for Wave Packet Propagation in Deformed Crystals

Abstract

We develop a theory for the trajectory of an x ray in the presence of a crystal deformation. A set of equations of motion for an x-ray wave packet including the dynamical diffraction is derived, taking into account the Berry phase as a correction to geometrical optics. The trajectory of the wave packet has a shift of the center position due to a crystal deformation. Remarkably, in the vicinity of the Bragg condition, the shift is enhanced by a factor ({omega}/{delta}{omega}) ({omega}: frequency of an x ray, {delta}{omega}: gap frequency induced by the Bragg reflection). Comparison with the conventional dynamical diffraction theory is also made.

  • A connection is made between a recently introduced Lagrange-distributed approximating-functional and the Paley-Wiener sampling theorem. The Lagrange-distributed approximating-functional sampling is found to provide much superior results to that of Paley-Wiener sampling. The relations between discrete variable representation and Lagrange-distributed approximating functionals are discussed. The latter is used to provide an even spaced, interpolative grid representation of the Hamiltonian, in which the kinetic energy matrix has a banded, Toeplitz structure. In this paper we demonstrate that the Lagrange-distributed approximating-functional representation is an accurate and reliable representation for use in fast-Fourier-transform wave-packet propagation methods and apply it to the time-independent wave-packet reactant-productmore » decoupling method, calculating state-to-state reaction probabilities for the two-dimensional (collinear) and three-dimensional (J=0) H+H{sub 2} reactions. The results are in very close agreement with those of previous calculations. We also discuss the connection between the distributed approximating-functional method and the existing mathematical formalism of moving least-squares theory. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • The regularities of the topographic contrast formation in weakly deformed nonabsorbing crystals in the Bragg geometry for the diffraction of a plane X-ray wave have been investigated by the method of Riemann functions. It is shown that in this case the extinction contrast has an interference character, alternates, and is proportional to the strain gradient rather than to the squared strain (like in the case of strong lattice distortions). The data of the analysis are compared with the results of a model numerical experiment. The possibility of implementing an X-ray-acoustic resonance in the Bragg geometry is shown.
  • The nonstandard theory of X-ray scattering in a deformed crystal has been generalized. The vector of atomic-plane displacement is introduced into the crystal polarizability model like in the generalized Takagi dynamic theory. The solution to the wave equation is sought for using the procedure of expanding the field amplitude and vector operators in the Fourier components of polarizability χ{sub H} in a series according to the multiscale method. It is shown that considering lattice strain generally calls for introducing various characteristic spatial regions for the diffraction equation, which is in complete agreement with the main concept of the multiscale method.more » A particular case of a strain field depending on one scale is considered. If a relative change in strain occurs at a length on the order of the extinction length, one can obtain equations generalizing the Takagi equations to the case of arbitrary diffraction geometries.« less
