Thank you very much for your prompt response. EXAFS measurement was done
after the XRD characterization. From XRD, it is confirmed that there is no
side phase formation and contamination. Hence, i guess the heavier element
role could be avoided here.
Split distances could be the reason??. The following is the method, i have
opted for modelling the obtained curve. Since YbVO4 is zircon structure, i
have constrained distance in paths 3, 8 and 9 with the pre-structural info
and let other distances vary with regular mathematical expression
alpha*Reff. am i doing wrong here? Before this, I have tried alpha*Reff for
all paths but fit failed miserably for multi-shells.
