Abstract : The most general analysis of diffuse X-ray scattering to obtain information about local atomic arrangements in disordered binary solid solutions has been presented by Borie and Sparks. It involves an expansion of the diffuse intensity into various components, each describing separately the local order or moments of the local displacement distribution. Each of these components has a different symmetry and is periodic in reciprocal space under the assumption that the ratio of atomic scattering factors does not vary drastically with sin θ-λ. This assumption does not hold in many systems of practical interest. Furthermore, even if valid, the information about local displacements is of limited value since the displacements of the two atomic species cannot be determined separately. Presented here is an analysis of a modification of the Borie and Sparks method, first suggested by Tibballs, which minimizes these problems. The displacement intensity components are broken down further into terms each involving a different atomic species. These new terms are strictly periodic in reciprocal space and the variation of the atomic scattering factor ratio is actually used to separate them. Diffuse scattering for a number of binary alloys was simulated by computer and subsequently analyzed by this method, including some commonly occuring errors counting statistics, background errors, etc

The errors propagating to the final SRO coefficients were never worse than those involved in a Borie and Sparks analysis, and the displacement coefficients for each atomic species could be determined within reasonable errors. An on-line computer program for making measurements with this technique is described.
