m] is the corrected scattering angle for maximum intensity, which is related to the actual scattering angle, [[theta].
In order to simulate the resolution at finite scattering angle (or finite scattering variable Q), a single-crystal diffraction sample is used to simulate Bragg peaks.
He further added that by measuring the scattering angle and understanding the physics of Coulomb multiple scattering, one can assess the locations and amount of the melted fuel in the reactor.

m] is the electron density of the medium in which the particles are dispersed, and q = (4[PI]/[lambada]) sin [theta], with 2[theta] the scattering angle, and [lambada] is the wavelength.
The figure represents the variation in the scattered intensity with the scattering vector, q, which is defined by: q = 4[pi] sin ([theta]/2)/[lambda], where [lambda] is the wavelength of the incident radiation (x-ray, light) and [theta] is the scattering angle.
Detectors measure intensity as a function of scattering angle and derive particle size based on Mie scattering theory.
Polarized reflected intensity will be measured as a function of scattering angle for uniformly sized microspheres.
SAXS is a study of X-ray scattering in reciprocal space at angles very close to the main beam--typically 2|Theta~|is less than~2 |degrees~, where |Theta~ is half the scattering angle.
The method lies on the fact that the scattering angle is inversely proportional to particle size, where for small particles the scattering is higher at high angles in contrast to the larger ones.
Above presented scattering profile is averaged overall scattering angle distribution realized with light beam which lighten whole paper sheet (Modric, 2007).
