    • Abstract


      Using paracrystalline statistics, we have simulated one-dimensional and three-dimensional X-ray diffraction patterns from natural silk fibres for various values of crystal size and lattice distortion parameters. This is in agreement with the experimental observation of X-ray pattern reported earlier.
