Raleigh scattering?

Simple question. Can diffraction be explained as a result of Raleigh scattering? Can you explain how sort of. Thank you.

There has been an experiment in nanotechnology which combined rayleigh scattering and electron diffraction. By doing this we can model transition energies of nanotubes as a function of their atomic structure. Other then that, I'm not sure how question can be answered.
