structure factor

[′strək·chər ‚fak·tər]
(solid-state physics)
A factor which determines the amplitude of the beam reflected from a given atomic plane in the diffraction of an x-ray beam by a crystal, and is equal to the sum of the atomic scattering factors of the atoms in a unit cell, each multiplied by an appropriate phase factor.
