No. It means that S02 must be evaluated for each path.
Or, I suppose, I should say that the product of N and S02 must be
evaluated for each path.
No! No! Actually, I should say that the product of N and S02 must be
evaluated correctly for each path where what I mean by "correctly"
depends upon the details of your fitting model.
That sounds right!
If you are fitting your copper foil data, then "correctly" probably
means to let N be the path degeneracy found by the path finder and to
use a single S02 parameter for all paths.
If you are fitting a crystal with different sites for the absorbing
atom -- say the super conductor YBa2Cu3O7, which has 1 Cu atom in the
Cu1 site and 2 Cu atoms in the Cu2 site -- then your parameterization
of S02 must be scaled accordingly depending on which Feff calculation
the path comes from.
If you are fitting an amorphous solid or a nanoparticle or something
else which unknown coordination, then you are probably best off
setting N to 1 and parameterizing S02 for each path in some manner
that captures the details of the coordination environment that you are
trying to measure.
Remember, N and S02 are multiplied together in the EXAFS equation.
