A universal intensity scale, for X-ray diffraction, which will relate the intensity of the strongest line of any compound to the strongest line of a standard substance, is proposed for inclusion in the X-Ray Powder Data File. Corundum, alpha-aluminum oxide, is a suitable reference standard. Advantages of the scale, as well as some precautions in using it, are discussed.
