where L is the correlation length, b is the length of the Burgers vector b, [sigma] equals |sin[psi]| where [psi] is the angle between the line vector l of the dislocation and the vector g, where g is the diffraction vector at which Bragg's law holds exactly for the reflection considered (length g; for cubic material it holds: g = ([h.
