A theoretical expression, which alIows the diffracted intensities to be corrected for defocusing, is derived from the convolution over the geometrical defocusing width of a diffraction peak fitted by a Cauchy function. Alignment errors are taken into account, and a good agreement between theoretical curves and experimental points is established.
