Dear Mailing list,
I am a relatively new user in terms of XAS data handling and I
encountered a strange problem during LCF in Athena.
I am working on LCF-combo fittings for Mn minerals as described in
Manceau et al. 2012*.
Fitting f.ex. a cryptomelane sample of myself with the open source
monovalent manganese mineral standards of Manceau et al. 2012 in a fit
range of -20 to +30 k, gives the following result shown below (I´ll
attach the Athena project):
" LCF fit of Cryptomelane_T_20K_ecd as flattened mu(E) from 6536.79 to 6586.79
Fit included 100 data points and 6 variables, and approximately 41.333
measurements
Weights sum to 1: no
Weights forced between 0 and 1: no
Overall e0 shift used: yes
Noise added to data: 0
R-factor = 0.0003537
Chi-square = 0.00815
Reduced chi-square = 0.0000858
. standard weight e0
========================================================
. Manganosite.dat 0.042 (0.006) 1.631 (0.044)
. Groutite.dat 0.030 (0.029) 1.631 (0.044)
. Ca2Mn3O8.dat 0.288 (0.026) 1.631 (0.044)
. Ramsdellite.dat 0.584 (0.022) 1.631 (0.044)
. Mn2O3.dat 0.044 (0.025) 1.631 (0.044)
. sum ........... 0.988 "
Note that the box “all standards share an E0” is checked before
clicking on “Fit this group”. Optically, the fit itself “looks” good
compared to the data, yet, it is somewhat shifted on the x-axis
compared to the data. I was wondering why, as this was not the first
sample where this was the case.
When I now uncheck the “All standards share an E0” box, leave
everything else just the way it is and just click “Fit this group”
again, the fit suddenly is shifted perfectly on my data. The strange
thing is: Nothing else in the output-results changes – weights,
R-factor, chi-square etc. just stay the same. Only slight changes in
the numbers in brackets after the reported weights. The "new" result is:
" LCF fit of Cryptomelane_Mikon_T_20K_ecd_reb-a-m as flattened mu(E)
from 6536.79 to 6586.79
Fit included 100 data points and 5 variables, and approximately 41.333
measurements

Can anybody tell me, what is actually happening? I exported both data
to excel to replot the fits to exclude a simple plot-bug, but the data
behind show that this is real. So, I am changing the data behind the
plot, but actually not the output data … what is going on here?
You find the project attached – I hope someone can tell me, how to
cope with that!
Thank you very much,
Teresa
