[Ifeffit] Measuring particle size by coordination number

Sorry, I may be asking a question already asked in the mailing
list, but I am unable to get it from the earlier discussions.
I am reading one of the research article ´´ Determination
of crystallite size in a magnetic nanocomposite using extended x-ray
absorption fine structure´´ .J. Appl. Phys,. vol 94, page 778, 2003
In this paper there is a formula N_nano =
[1-3/4(r/R)+1/16(r/R)^3]N_bulk, which you said can be used in the Artemis
for extracting the particle size.
I am trying to use this formula for determination of size of
Ni particles in an Ni / Al2O3 catalyst. From TEM the size determined is
around 4 nm.
So, I am trying to fit the theoretical model of Ni metal to
the sample data in the Artemis
I defined a guessed parameter R and then put the whole
formula for S02 = amp*(1-(0.75*(Reff/R))+(0.063*(Reff*Reff*Reff/(R*R*R)))).
The value of R I am getting is 0.81 (0.05) which is quite
Is there something I am missing in the formula or I have to
define the N seprately for sample cooridnation number.
Currently, I am using only the first path in the fitting.
