Rev Sci Instrum 1970 Aug; 41(8):1133-1135
Experimental elimination and determination of the compton component in diffuse scattering have been made by using crystal monochromated ag ka radiation and balanced rh and ru filters. The k adsorption edge of ru (^=0.5605 Oa) lies very close to the wavelength of ag ka1 (^=0.5594 Oa) so that the intensity obtained using balanced rh-ru filters at scattering angles 2 0>20 deg. is essentially the unmodified ag ka1 scattering. A procedure is outlined for the elimination of the compton component at lower angles and for conversion of arbitrary intensities into electron units.
