This exercise provides a tutorial example of how to use the GSAS software package with the EXPGUI interface to perform Rietveld analysis. The following pages show how to use EXPGUI to perform the same tutorial refinement for Nickel powder, presented in the GSAS manual. The GSAS manual is included with the distributions of the GSAS programs (see above). The manual can be found EXPGUI website.

Further tutorials and information on GSAS can be found on: Play with these concepts and see what happens. LST file which is huge now as it contains all the results of the refinement cycles, check the final weight estimates. In some cases e. The misfit is large as you will see. Click on the Scaling menu and unflag the Refine option of the Scale Histogram scale factor.

GSAS You need to put in a folder the following files: This algorithm is based on the normalisation condition i background and the above expfui equation does not include it. You can save a postcript file to print later. Colella De Frede, Napoli A closer inspection, ,anual the Powplot routine shows the very good fit in a selected region which contains many peaks of both phases Fig.

Modern Powder Diffraction Rev.

Structure models can be taken from crystal structure databases such as ICSD see http: To my experience ,when there is just one preferred orientation direction it is better and safer to use the MD ecpgui because the SH model gives a better fit maunal the physical meaning can be lost if too many coefficients of the polynomial are refined.


Here are some GSAS mirror sites: Repeat the described actions to see the plots after the next refinements cycles.

Programs (downloads, links and basic instructions)

Good results even with complex structured backgrounds are obtained with Function type 1 Shifted Expgii. The detector is units in height. Impacts of policy mean Manual last edited Put a title to this experiment file say: It is time now to define a background function and prepare it for the refinement.

Modern Powder Diffraction Rev. Remember that you can create several of these objects simultaneously limited only by memory! De La Torre, A.

Finally click Add atoms. See the FAQ for a few more details. The site with everything structural: I suggest to set the initial values of the phase fractions to a large value For a Rietveld refinement, it is essential that the powder data is properly collected.

One of the problems in the quantification of mannual amorphous phase using the internal standard methods is that the standard may not be fully crystalline.

Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. To do this, go to the Constraints menu and select Profile. This means that if the subtraction is performed, the background usually has to be re-estimated and resubtracted several times during a refinement.


We are ready for the firt cycles of refinement! I suggest to set the initial values of the phase fractions to a large value There is a general feeling that the existing models for the correction of microabsorption effects should be revised as they appear to be not adequate even for simple systems containing only crystalline phases Madsen et al. In the main window you can scroll through these patterns by clicking the arrows next to the workspace identifier.

LST file which is huge now as it contains all the results of the refinement cycles, check the final weight estimates. In some cases e.

Nonetheless, I agree with McCusker et al. When convergence is reached, a significant improvement of espgui fit is observed: Help Center Find new research papers in: Especially microabsorption effects are very hard to handle.

Note that starting with Fox 1. You can change the numbers to give the section of the detector you want.

The scattering contribution of any amorphous component possibly existing in the sample is a part of the background and the above normalisation equation does not include it.
