In small angle scattering the determination of characteristic parameters has become a useful tool for the evaluation of scattered intensity of dilute systems containing identical particles [1]. But in most cases, especially in problems of solid state physics, the scattering systems are of more complicated structure. The most general information we can draw from elastic isotropic small angle scattering is contained in the correlation function g (r) as the spatial Fourier transform of the scattering function S (ϰ), where ϰ = 4π · sin (ϑ/2)/λ. ϑ is the scattering angle and λ the wavelength.
