This is an old revision of the document!


This macro is part of a collection of macros that are used to model the effects of a flat plat sample with a fixed angle incident beam.

There is a nice overview of their application in [1]. Individual references are given for each macro.

Thick Sample absorption correction for fixed incident beam geometry. There is a typo in the delta function in the original reference. It's correct here. Ref: Masson, O., Guiebretière, R. & Dauger, A. (1996). J. Appl. Cryst. 29, 540-546.
