In the wavelength regime associated with anomalous scattering, where the refractive index becomes complex, its imaginary component contributing an additional term to the absorption.
is the scattering factor for ideal elastic scattering. The dispersion corrections f′ and f′′ are related to the absorption since (James, 1962; Wagenfeld, 1975) That is, the dispersion corrections are determined by the absorption cross sections. The relationships (6.3.2.2) and (6.3.2.3) can be used in measuring absorption coefficients, as described in Section 4.2.4 . The dispersion terms change rapidly near the absorption edge, especially on the shortwavelength side. The changes are anisotropic, sensitive to structure and to the direction of polarization. Details are given by Templeton & Templeton (1980, 1982, 1985).
In nearperfect crystals, the changes near the absorption edge are also sensitive to temperature (Karamura & Fukamachi, 1979; Fukamachi, Karamura, Hayakawa, Nakano & Koh, 1982). The effective absorption coefficient can also be altered by the Borrmann effect (Azaroff, Kaplow, Kato, Weiss, Wilson & Young, 1974).
