The dependence of the attenuation correction factor, Asphere, for elastic scattering on the width of the incident beam w for scattering angles [2\theta] of 5, 50 and 100°. The results are presented for a spherical vanadium sample of radius rs = 0.15 cm with an incident neutron wavelength of [\lambda = 0.5] Å. For a given scattering angle, Asphere is a constant for [w \,\gt\, 2r_{\rm s} = 0.3] cm since the sample is then fully illuminated by the incident beam.  [article HTML]
