Multiple-wave diffraction can be understood and predicted according to the diffraction geometry. The diffraction experiments can be realized with the techniques and methods mentioned in the previous chapters. When a multiple-wave diffraction intensity distribution or pattern is acquired, how to interpret it is an important step in understanding the multiple-wave interaction in a crystal. Since multiple-wave diffraction is a combination of many two-wave diffractions, the intensity aspect of multiply diffracted waves could be, in principle, handled by the usual ways adopted for two-wave diffraction.
