[Ifeffit] Warning "e0 is greater than 10"

Hi Ke, 

Regarding the 'correct' E0 position, did you place it past the white line? I find that if there is a huge white line (eg. Au2O3 Au-L3 edge), I need to place E0 in Athena at any point past the white line but before (or not too far out) the EXAFS. This way, the energy shift values I get are much better, < 5 eV. But if I place E0 at the rising edge of the white line, I get big energy shifts. 

Might be useful--> 

Best wishes,
Sin Yuen

Hi Ke

Yes, if you change the position of your E0 in Athena, it will result in a shift in your fit parameters.  However, don't simply shift your E0 just to avoid the warning.  Take a look to see if Athena mispositioned it first but if you are confident that it is correct, then you might take a look to see if E0 is large because you are not using a good model to fit the data. 
E0 is highly correlated with the path lengths so if you are way off in the latter, it can have an effect on E0.
