# Data Coverage In Radial Diffraction Experiments

If you perform a radial diffraction experiment, your incoming x-ray beam is perpendicular to the compression direction. In the figure below, the x-ray beam is parallel to the Y axis with Y pointing towards the detector. Z is parallel to the compression axis.

We show the location of the data measured at eta=0, eta=90, eta=180 and eta=180 on the pole figure of the compression direction. Eta is the azimuth angle on the image plate. I personaly call it delta in my publications, but MAUD calls it eta...

 Figure 1: diffraction in radial geometry with the azimuthal angle on the image plate equals to 0. n is the normal to the diffraction plane and we report the orientation of n on the pole figure. Those planes are nearly perpendicular to the direction of compression. Figure 2: diffraction in radial geometry with the azimuthal angle on the image plate equals to 90. n is the normal to the diffraction plane and we report the orientation of n on the pole figure. Those planes are parallel to the direction of compression. Figure 3: diffraction in radial geometry with the azimuthal angle on the image plate equals to 180. n is the normal to the diffraction plane and we report the orientation of n on the pole figure. Those planes are nearly perpendicular to the direction of compression Figure 4: diffraction in radial geometry with the azimuthal angle on the image plate equals to 270. n is the normal to the diffraction plane and we report the orientation of n on the pole figure. Those planes are parallel to the direction of compression.

Overall, on a pole figure of the compression direction, one diffraction ring will provide you with the following coverage
