Form Factor

Assuming a particle is cylindrically-symmetric:

We of course use cylindrical coordinates:

We can take advantage of the cylindrical symmetry by rotating any candidate q-vector into the plane, eliminating the component:

The form factor is (note that the integration limits in z define the particle size in that direction):
