Definition of scattering angle in English:

scattering angle


  • The angle through which a scattered particle or beam is deflected.

    • ‘In theory, the scattering angles lead to nanoscale still pictures, while the energy loss data tell researchers how the pictures change with time.’
    • ‘The scattering intensity grew severalfold at the forward angles over time, exhibiting rather monotonic dependencies within the studied range of the scattering angles.’
    • ‘Notably, similar distributions were observed at several scattering angles, which strengthens the validity of the interpretation.’
    • ‘Due to a lack of data at small scattering angles, the authors could not unambiguously identify the morphologies.’
    • ‘The objective accepts light according to its numerical aperture, determining what scattering angles are collected.’
