Re: Xmac
« on: March 29, 2017, 10:28:19 AM »
Hi,

Does anyone know if its possible to change the MAC when quantifying k-ratios. What I'd like to do is write a script to adjust the MAC finding the best fit to data collected at multiple voltages - to experimentally measure the MAC.

Thanks

Ben

Hi Ben,
I don't know about DTSA-II, but what you describe is exactly what Pouchou's XMAC software does.

Hi John,

How is XMAC software distributed? Is it part of SAMX XMAS or a seperate SAMX package - I can't see it in the 2002 version

Also does anyone have a copy of the following paper - which I think explains the method

POUCHOU, J.L. & PICHOIR, F. (1988). A simplified version of the
“PAP” model for matrix corrections in EPMA. In Microbeam
Analysis, Newbury, D.E. (Ed.), pp. 319–324. San Francisco, CA:
San Francisco Press

Thanks

Ben

Hi Ben,
Yes, XMAC is part of the SAMx STRATAGem package.

If you do a search of "XMAC" on this forum you'll see several mentions, for example:

John and all: Actually you do not need to have the (nice but expensive StrataGEM or other) SamX software. The application is standalone (with everything needed to execute, albeit on older PCs) and apparently licensed to Pouchou and ONERA. I have a zipped version on my EPMA class software web page, which can be downloaded.
Go to: http://www.geology.wisc.edu/~johnf/g777/777Software.html
It's at the bottom. Also there is gmrfilm (Waldo's thin film DOS software).

What link are you talking about?

If you are looking for Xmac that is commercial software and cannot be distributed, but you can do the same calculation for mass absorption coefficients from experimental intensities as Xmac, using the new BadgerFilm I think.

Thank you, John. I will try the BadgerFilm.
