7.1.3.2.1 The distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA)

Abstract

This chapter talks about dynamical theory including distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA). The extraction of phonon spectra from TOF data relies mostly on one-phonon processes, for which the first order DWBA is appropriate. The DWBA gives the reflection coefficient to first order in the displacements of the crystal atoms from their equilibrium positions.
