Bragg-case synchrotron section topographs were studied in parallel slabs cut from a synthetic diamond of a good quality. The topographs revealed the Pendellösung fringes and images of dislocations and other defects containing several fringe systems. The experiment provided the opportunity for studying of the theoretical dislocation images obtained by numerical integration of the Takagi-Taupin equations. A program employing a variable step of integration in the Bragg-case has been presented. The influence of the finite slit width and of the limited beam divergence on the theoretical images is also discussed.
