Bent crystal lamellae may consist of individual blocks, spaced somewhat irregularly and having a mutual angular disorientation. In this case, the X-ray intensities of the individual blocks will simply be added. As long as the blocks are not too small, no effect on integrated intensity or line width of a Debye-Scherrer line is to be expected.
