High-angle double-crystal X-ray diffractometry (HADOX) has been applied to measure the intensity around three reciprocal lattice points: 400,040 and 004 of SrTiO3. Each point splits into two in the tetragonal phase according to the appearance of three kinds of domains; the temperature dependence of the intensity of component peaks at these points was measured under identical conditions. The results show that the domain population varies with temperature in a range of about 20 K below the transition. It is found, however, that the total intensities of 400 and 004 of the tetragonal phase are constant; this is observed by summing up the relevant intensity at the three reciprocal lattice points.
