I agree to your point.
AS of now I am not attempting to fit the Ca substituted system for two
1.I am specifically looking for the "cause" for the structure in the
second peak. The structure
is present in the calculated CdO Chi(R) plot itself.
2. Apart from that when I tried to put in Ca in the ATOM, Ca is not at all
appearing in the list
after running ATOM.
Can you help me out in this matter as well.
