The practical applicability of anomalous scattering and null-domain ghost corrections for fibre textures is theoretically evaluated. For a hypothetical asymmetric orientation distribution of quartz-like BPO4 highly absorpting crystals, slightly asymmetric anomalous scattering pole figures are predicted. On the basis of projection relations among orientation distribution functions and inverse pole figures, the special characteristics of the null-domain method for fibre textures are discussed, with the suggestion of a practical procedure to estimate (in favourable cases) an upper limit for ghosts effects.
