[Ifeffit] EXAFS above 5 angstroms

Those distances are really far away and I think it would really difficult to see in EXAFS even with pretty high quality data.  Is there are other information from diffraction that suggests these distances?

I am attempting to verify a crystal structure with a= ~6 angstroms, and another structure with a=~9 angstroms. I know that there is some inhibiting physics at such long distances, such as inelastic scattering, and core-hole lifetime issues that can effect the data. My question for the group is, is there any methodical way to deal with these issues, other than incorporating Ei and the higher cumulants? Or is it even possible to get results from such large R?
