Wilkins' X-ray diffraction pattern

How to obtained an X-ray diffraction pattern. Wilkins had a different DNA pattern from Rosalind Franklin. Wilkins provided Franklin with the DNA. (DNAi location: Code > Finding the Structure > piece of the puzzle > Wilkins' X-ray)

This is one of the X-ray diffraction patterns of DNA obtained by Maurice Wilkins. He worked concurrently with Rosalind Franklin, and provided Franklin with the DNA samples that she used to get the sharper B-form image.
