Hi all,
I agree that adding debye waller factors in feff might be confusing,
however, it can be useful if you are using a model for the DW factors that
is not included in ifeffit, i.e., the spring constant, equation of motion,
or dynamical matrix based methods. If these (or any of the other models in
feff) are used, it will not change the path parameters used by ifeffit. The
DWFs are only used in constructing chi(k), but the DWFs are printed out for
each path so that they can be used in ifeffit/artemis if needed.
