How's diffraction pattern modied by phonon perturbation?

Hi there,
I have a problem on phonon perturbation's effect on diffraction pattern.

Assume atomic planes parallel to (100) of bcc lattice is periodically perturbed by phonon.

How will diffraction pattern be modified as a result of such perturbation? Will we see any diffraction peaks in addition to those seen for a unperturbed lattice?

Thanks!

You get a reduction in the amplitude of the normal diffraction peaks, usually described by a Debye-Waller factor, and in addition you get Thermal Diffuse Scattering.
