Abstract

A method is given for choosing the relative counting times, for the sample-in-
container and empty container parts of a fixed-duration scattering experiment, in
order to minimise the statistical error on the container-corrected intensity. The
method is applied to angular-dispersive diffraction experiments, and the effect on
the fractional error of misestimating the relative run-times is considered.
