Bragg-case synchrotron double-crystal images of stacking faults were studied in a slab prepared from a synthetic diamond of a good quality. The images of stacking faults in topographs taken on the tails of the rocking curve exhibited well pronounced interference fringes. The fringes were strongly dependent on the angular setting and they were less spaced further from the maximum. The experimental images were compared with those theoretically predicted from an application of plane-wave dynamical theory. A reasonably good correspondence between theoretical and experimental images was obtained. The theoretical images of stacking faults were dependent on the type of stacking fault, producing some difference in the first fringe.
