The waves radiated from different electrons are not in phase and cannot interfere, as in storage rings the electrons in a bunch are uncorrelated. This is in contrast to X-ray lasers, as will be shown in the next section. 7 Principle of an undulator. One electron radiates at different times and the radiation overlaps. Only in forward direction and for a particular wavelength (see ellipsis on the right side), the two waves interfere constructively. It is clear that constructive interference appears only if all waves have the same wavelength with a very small bandwidth.
16) This has two parts. The single sum contains the incoherent scattering from each interface. Each of the terms is multiplied with a damping exponential, which is determined by the roughness of the respective interface. The interference of the scattering from the interfaces is represented by the double sum. It can be shown that for N layers with N + 1 interfaces N(N + 1)/2 interference terms exist, which appear as fringes in the reflectivity data. The amplitude of the fringes is determined by the electron density step (the contrast) at the corresponding interfaces.
In thin parallel lines, the lattice planes are drawn. In the Bragg case, the crystal can be semi-infinitely thick. In both cases, interference patterns are expected for finite crystal thickness (as predicted by the so-called Pendellösung ansatz). However, in the Bragg case, the crystal thickness (when used for X-ray optics) is usually some millimeters such that the interference beating does not appear and only the envelope of the curve is visible. g. if the surfaces are not well polished interferences are suppressed.
