High-Order Reflections The relatively low intensity of high-order reflections rules out their use for analytical purposes but they are of interest (especially in trace element analysis) since they can cause interferences. The crystal reflection curve becomes narrower with increasing 'n', because the shorter the wavelength the more rapidly rays reflected from successive layers become out of phase with changing incidence angle. However, observed high-order peaks are not commensurately narrower than first-order peaks at the same Bragg angle (Fig.
