[Ifeffit] EXAFS of solid-solution alloy

A couple of thoughts...

A) If I were approaching a problem like this, I would probably prepare a
series of samples with different ratios, and look for trends in the fits.
If you see consistent differences across the series, in the same direction,
you can probably be more confident in the resulting fits, and in your

B) This problem seems like it might be a good application of a wavelet
transform for analysis. I've been meaning to do some wavelet analysis
myself, but haven't gotten around to it, so I can't offer specific
advice...But perhaps someone on the list can.
