Demeter OS X plot button colors in Athena

Hi Bruce,


We are seeing an issue in Athena where the plot buttons are not colored correctly. According to section 2.1 of the Athena Users’s Guide, the top row of plot buttons highlighted in the image should be the same color (purple) as the plotting option widgets below them. The 2nd row of plot buttons should be yellowish. However on OS X, all plot buttons appear uncolored. By far the best way to illustrate this is with a screenshot of the Athena UI. I hope the attached image is clear enough to show the issue. 

I am running Demeter version 0.9.20pre10 via Macports demeter-devel on OS X 10.9.4.  

BTW, I am happy to work with you on other OS X issues but I am not actually a demeter user and I don’t have much data myself. But if you send me some data, I can follow steps to try to reproduce issues. 


Cheers!
Frank

simulating As K edge XANES using full multi scatering method

Dear all,
 
Does anyone have experience for simulating As K edge XANES using multi-scatering method or some other methods. Please introduce some papers or articles to me.
Any help is appreciated.
 
Regards,
Shaofeng

demeter-devel: Athena autosave hang issue

Installed the newest version of the software for the Mac OS X earlier this week.

v129-22-124-229:~ jwc137$ port installed ifeffit p5.16-ifeffit demeter-devel

The following ports are currently installed:

  demeter-devel <at> 0.9.20pre10_0 (active)

  ifeffit <at> 1.2.11c_0+gcc48

  ifeffit <at> 1.2.13_0+gcc48 (active)

  p5.16-ifeffit <at> 1.0.0_0

  p5.16-ifeffit <at> 2_0 (active)


Now when I try to run athena the software hangs on an autosave file. I am unable to click either button the the pop-up menu to advance the software and I get the "application not responding" error. I searched for an athena.autosave file, as discussed in a previous thread about this issue, but don't find one.


v129-22-124-229:~ jwc137$ find athena.autosave

find: athena.autosave: No such file or directory


Cheers

Jennifer

Re: Ifeffit Digest, Vol 137, Issue 36

Hi, Bruce

With your instruction, we solved the GDS issue. However, for ATOM, I was screened out to the link you posted. Is there any way to just send me an ATOM file that has many more atom entry lines, I can use it as a template. Thanks you so much.

The fact that the "add site" button on the atoms page was broken is
among the things on the list of changes for the version I have been
working to get tested and released.

  https://github.com/bruceravel/demeter/blob/master/Changes.org

As for the GDS page, there are several ways of adding a new GDS entry,
described here

  http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/artug/gds.html

On the path page, in the box which contains the math expression for a
path parameter, try right clicking on GDS parameter.  It'll pop up a
menu that allows you to define a new parameter.

It seems I neglected to put that last thing in the document -- that
needs to be fixed.

Dr Li,

If I'm understanding the questions properly, there should be some fairly straightforward fixes.  Simplest first:  in GDS, there should be a button on the right side that says "Add GDS."  Clicking on it will give you additional variables (or definitions, restraints, etc.) in GDS.  Otherwise, you could right-click on the numbers to the left of the "type" column.  You'll get options like "insert blank line above (or below) current row."  This is convenient for keeping your variables grouped intelligently while fitting.  To the best of my knowledge, there is no maximum number of lines in GDS, though your number of variables should be limited by 2/3 the number of independent points available from your data.  Additionally, you're only allowed a maximum of 10 restraints at any time in a fit.

Regarding Atoms, it sounds like you're trying to manually add elements to the coordination sphere of your absorbing element.  There should be a button, "add a site" which will allow you to add more than 8 elements.  That said, I've never prepared my scattering pathways in this fashion (this probably says more about my inexperience than anything else).  Most of the time, I call Atoms from Artemis, input a cif file, run atoms, run feff, and have a list of scattering pathways afterwards.  If your system isn't crystalline, you can run several Feff calculations with different cif files which have the correct absorbing atom and an appropriate scattering atom.  (You have to add each of these Feff calculations in Artemis individually.)  Then, use the generated scattering paths to model your data.  

Also, Atoms allows a person to modify the input file (I believe they're referred to as "cards") as a text document from within the Atoms program.  So, if I have a model with no cif file, I can run atoms with any other cif file to generate some sort of card for feff, then I can edit the card appropriately by copy/pasting the Cartesian coordinates and defining the appropriate ipot value for each element.  If you have the card already generated from another cif file, it's fairly straightforward to edit it to represent your model.

- Carter

HI, Bruce and Matt

For the Demeter version I am using, I found that I could just enter 8 atoms in ATOM, and define 12 variables in GDS. Could I enter more atoms in ATOMS, and define more variables in GDS? and How? Thanks.

So I uninstalled both versions of the demeter-devel and then followed the
original instructions for installing a new version of the software

Now the software is hanging on a non-existing autosave file. The window
pops up, but then I get the rainbow wheel of death and I am unable to click
the don't import button.

Fwd: from Rui Si at SSRF: help needed


Hi Rui,

I am CCing my answer to you and to the Ifeffit Mailing List.  It's
always a good idea to use the mailing list as it greatly increases the
number of eyes that get to look at your question.  If you reply to
this, please do so via the mailing list.

In the PDF file you attached, you asked these two questions:

    (1) Why the second peak (ca. 3 Å) in experimental data is missing in
        the Co3O4 model?

I do not know anything about your sample, so this is a tough question.
Are you certain of its phase purity?  Could there be another form of
cobalt oxide present in the sample?

    (2) Why need to add the “shift vector” suggested by Artemis?
        Actually, no action is required and the software change the Co
        core from 0.125, 0.125, 0.125 to 0.5 0.5 0.5, and keep the shift
        vector as 0 0 0.

The purpose of the shift vector is explained here:

 
http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/artug/atoms/space.html#multipleoriginsandtheshiftkeyword

In the case of the CIF file you attached, the shift vecotr does not
seem required.  The list of atomic coordinates without the shift
vecotr looks right to me.

Hi Bruce,

Here, I have a question needs your help on the EXAFS fittings.

When I tried to fit the Co3O4 standard (cif and apj file attached),
there was a "shift vector" problem, which has been resulted in the
mismatch between experimental data and theoretic model. Please see the
details in the attachment.

I am not familiar with crystal models, and thus I cannot find the key.
Could you please help me?

Many thanks!

Best,

crystallite size determination by EXAFS

Dear all,

 

I have some questions regarding crystallite size determination by EXAFS. I am investigating a system where there is a formation of metallic Cu in the system. I could see the presence of metallic Cu in the sample by XRD and EXAFS. However, high resolution TEM does not show any evidence of metallic Cu, perhaps the crystallite size is much smaller than the resolving power of the microscope and/or these crystallites are highly disordered.

 

Nevertheless, I thought of estimating the size of Cu crystallites by EXAFS. I know at least two approaches described by two prominent members of the mailing list, Scott Calvin and Anatoly Frenkel. The approach by Scott Calvin (http://link.aip.org/link/JAPIAU/v94/i1/p778/s1&Agg=doi) estimates crystallite size based on an assumption that they are spherical in shape. On the other hand, Anatoly Frenkel’s approach estimates both size and shape of crystallites based on the number of neighbors in each coordination shell obtained from EXAFS fit http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jp012769j

 

I have questions about the second approach. I would like to know how to calculate the number of neighbors in various coordination shells as a function of cluster size for different shapes ? Conversely, if one knows the number of neighbors in various shells from EXAFS fits, then how to correlate those numbers to clusters of different sizes and shapes as discussed by Anatoly Frenkel.

 

I know my questions are very specific, but I am sure many in the list would have already tried both these approaches and may provide some valuable insights.

 

Many thanks in advance !

 

With best regards,

Jatin

ATOM and GDS

HI, Bruce and Matt

For the Demeter version I am using, I found that I could just enter 8 atoms in ATOM, and define 12 variables in GDS. Could I enter more atoms in ATOMS, and define more variables in GDS? and How? Thanks.

Macports ifeffit and Demeter Update

Mac OS X users,


Thanks to help from Bruce Ravel and Matt Newville, I have updated ifeffit and Demeter-devel in Macports to fix a number of problems reported. 

To update from your current version type the following:

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port upgrade outdated

To install from scratch after installing Macports [1]:

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port install demeter-devel

When done, your should see the following ports installed:

$ port installed ifeffit p5.16-ifeffit demeter-devel
The following ports are currently installed:
  demeter-devel <at> 0.9.20pre10_0 (active)
  ifeffit <at> 1.2.13_0+gcc48 (active)
  p5.16-ifeffit <at> 2_0 (active)

Please reply to the list (NOT to me directly) about how this works for you. 


Cheers!
Frank

Energy shift in exported data

Hello,

I have noticed the following behavior in Athena 0.9.20 on OSX 10.8.5. If a group with an energy shift applied is exported as norm(E) using the export marked groups option then the energy shift is not preserved in the .nor file. If the export current group option is used then the energy shift is preserved. This seems to be general behavior and should be straightforward to reproduce, but I can provide an example project if needed.

Thank you,
George

Athena/Artemis/Atoms OSX (10.9.3) issues

I am running into the following issues (screen shots for each are attached)

1st) starting athena from the terminal

I get the following message but the software hangs (rainbow wheel of death) and I am unable to advance to the main page

"Athena found and autosave file. Would you like to import"

I tried uninstalling in terminal: sudo port uninstall xorg-server demeter
and reinstalling in terminal:  sudo port install xorg-server demeter

but the program still hangs 


2nd) The screens for artemis and atoms have black backgrounds so that the text is hidden. 
As a new user I am having a hard time using the software in a semi-blind mode.

Thanks
Jennifer

Be EXAFS and publication

Hi,
This may be a long shot, but
I was wondering if anyone is aware of EXAFS data on HCP Be. In particular we are looking for Debye-Waller Factors, so a publication would be great, but just data might work as well. 
Thanks,
Josh Kas
