Pertinent aspects of dynamical X-ray diffraction theory are discussed with reference to large perfect absorbing crystals. Experimental results of the effect in silicon single crystals of surface damage, dislocations and oxygen solute fluctuations on the diffraction of X-rays are presented. Consideration is given to the magnitude of the strains necessary for imperfections to be seen with some comment on the various models proposed for oxygen presipitation in silicon.
