The Profile of a Bragg Reflection for Extracting Intensities

A Bragg reflection from a perfect crystalline material, measured on a perfect diffractometer, would have a simple Dirac peak profile (the δ function) exactly located at the diffracting angle position 2θ expected from the Bragg law (2dsinθ = λ). Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a perfect diff...
