diffraction peak

The region of the diffraction pattern close to a scattering angle of 0°.

As particles become large compared with the wavelength of incident radiation, the diffraction peak becomes larger and tends to dominate the entire diffraction pattern, giving rise to most of the diffraction pattern effects associated with geometric optics.
