Thanks Carlo for that input. I will keep it in mind. Actually I also have
this Eo>10 problem and I was following this dicussion closely. Thanks Ke
for raising the problem. I think my problem lies with the 'Not so good
modelling of data' as my compounds are Fe(II) based and the local structure
of which is not known. These are new compounds. Although, I want to make
sure that the basic steps such as E calibration and background removal is
I am still facing problem with the background removal. How would you know
that the RBKG value if set to 1.2 or 1.4 etc is good and the Background
removal is ok to use from Athena and take it over to Artemis? are there any
set of parameters we should check, that if ok we can consider the BKG
removal is good?
Thank you everyone in advance for your anticipated help.
