diffraction pattern

The pattern of alternating light and dark rings or bands produced when light is diffracted by a circular opening or object (rings) or a rectangular slit or an edge (bands). See also Airy disk; interference.

Furthermore, the diffraction pattern closely resembles the hologram analogy of Bohm [2] such that the rotation of crystal planes is the enfolded implicate order within the recorded patterns and is unfolded through the rotation of patterns recorded in sequence from the crystal surface.
If all of the proteins in the crystal are aligned in an identical way, forming a very perfect crystal, then all of the proteins will scatter x-rays the same way, and the diffraction pattern will show the fine details of crystal.
