Conversion to Multifit format
Once your macro has run. You will have to convert those CHI files to the internal multifit format. Return to multifit and select the
Data handling -> Convert CHI to IDL: multiple sets menu item and, once again, fill up the form!
Converting chi files into Multifit format
For each image (e.g.
test_0003), it will read the corresponding chi files (e.g.
test_0003_360.chi) and store them in a binary file with a
idl extension (e.g.
Loading the data in Multifit
To load the data into into Multifit, select the
Input files -> Multiple input files menu item and fill up a form as described below
Load data in multifit
This example will load data from
D0607_184.idl. The file loaded will appear in the
Active datasets panel of the main window.
Plotting the data: Mapplot
To plot a dataset in as color contours, select the set to plot, and hit the
Mapplot button below the file list, and you'll get something like this
Plotting the: 2-D plot
To plot a dataset in 2-D, select the set to plot, and hit the
Plot button. You will have a dialog window with options to choose
- azimuth values for which to plot the diffractograms
- a stretch factor (larger values will bring the plots together)
- how often to label azimuth angles
- the 2 theta range
Play around with the parameters and you should be able to plot something like this
