The kinematically forbidden 200 spot can frequently be observed in Si near the [001] orientation where it cannot be generated by multiple diffraction with strong Bragg reflections. The multiple scattering effects from spots in higher-order Laue zones close to the Ewald sphere can probably account for the observed intensity even though many cancellation effects occur.
