+ | ====== 11 Charge-flipping ====== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The charge-flipping method of [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]] (2004) has been implemented using the keywords shown in Table 11‑2. Also included is the use of the tangent formula (Hauptman & Karle, 1956) within the iterative charge-flipping process. Equations appearing in charge-flipping keywords can be functions of the items shown in Table 11‑1. At the end of a charge flipping process a file with the same name as that given by //cf_hkl_file// is created but with a *.FC extension. Almost all of the charge-flipping keywords can be equations allowing for great flexibility in regards to changing resolution etc… on the fly. Table 11‑3 lists charge-flipping examples found in the CF directory. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== 11.1 Charge-flipping usage ===== | ||

+ | |||

+ | CF works particularlly well on data at good resolution (<1Å resolution). For data at poor resolution or for difficult structures then inclusion of the tangent formula can facilitate solution and sharpen electron densities, see example CF-1A7Y.INP. Powder diffraction data usually fall under the poor resolution/data quality category and as such additional symmetry restraints using //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// can sharpen electron densities. Example CF-ALVO4.INP demonstrates the use of the tangent formula on powder data. | ||

+ | |||

+ | The choice and amount of perturbation necessary for finding a solution are important considerations. Not enough perturbation leads to the system being trapped within a local parameter space; too much perturbation may lead to a solution not being found and in addition contrast in //R//-factors prior to and at convergence are diminished leading to difficult to identify solutions. Many of the examples in the CF directory uses the Ramp macro to gradually vary control parameters, here are some examples: | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_density_to_flip = Ramp(0.85, 0.8, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_reflections_weak = Ramp(0.5, 0, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | flip_regime_2 = Ramp(1, 0, 200); | ||

+ | |||

+ | flip_regime_3 = Ramp(0.25, 0.5, 200); | ||

+ | |||

+ | symmetry_obey_0_to_1 = Ramp(0.5, 1, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | tangent_scale_difference_by = Ramp(0, 1, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Choosing control parameters in this manner gradually decreases perturbation allowing for solutions to be found and identified. This is similar to a simulated annealing process where temperatures start at high values and then progressively lowered. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.1.1 Perturbations ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Perturbations can be categorized as being of either phase, structure factor intensity or electron density perturbations as shown in Table 11‑2. There are two built in flipping regimes, //flip_regime_2// and //flip_regime_3//, and one user defined regime //flip_equation//. Only one can be used and they all modify the electron density. In the absence of a flipping regime the following is used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | | <sub>{{techref_files:image171.gif?175x48}}</sub> | (11‑1) | | ||

+ | |||

+ | where //d// corresponds to the electron density threshold. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Using the tangent formula on either difficult structures or on data at poor resolution often leads to uranium atom solutions. Uranium atom solutions can be avoided by modifying the electron density using a flipping regime that dampens high electron densities or by using //pick_atoms//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Using a large number of triplets per //E<sub>h</sub>// value (a value for //tangent_max_triplets_per_h// greater than 100) reduces perturbation, increases occurrences of uranium atom solutions and increases the chances of finding a solution after an initial phase randomization. A large number of triplets would typically be used for poor resolution data; correspondingly a flipping regime that avoids uranium atom solutions should be chosen. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Perturbations mostly increase randomness in the system with the exceptions of the tangent formula, //scale_density_below_threshold// and //histogram_match_scale_fwhm//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.1.2 The Ewald sphere, weak reflections and CF termination ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | By default CF uses the minimum observed //d// spacing to define the Ewald sphere; alternatively //min_d// can be used. The Ewald sphere can be increased using //[[#cf_e36|extend_calculated_sphere_to]]//; this inserts missing reflections and gives them the status of “weak” reflections. Weak reflections are also inserted for missing reflections within the Ewald sphere. Weak reflection phases and structure factors can be modified using //scale_weak_reflections// and //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Reflections that have zero intensities according to the space group are not included in CF; correspondingly the number of observed reflections removed are reported. Structure factor intensities within a family of reflections are determined by averaging the observed structure factors intensities. This averaging is also performed on calculated intensities each CF iteration for weak reflections. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Changing the space group is possible; changing the space group to a higher symmetry from that as implied in the input hkl file often makes sense. Changing the space group to a lower symmetry implies less symmetry and is useful for checking whether a significantly better //R//-factor is realized. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Typically a fraction of observed reflections are given the status of “weak” using //fraction_reflections_weak//. When a solution is found and CF terminates a *.FC file is saved; this file comprises structures factors that produced the best //R//-factor. A new CF process can be initiated with phase information saved in the *.FC file using the Restart_CF macro. To further complete the structure the new CF process may for example reduce perturbations in order to sharpen the electron density. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.1.3 Powder data considerations ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | For powder data it is usually best to maximize the number of constraints due to poor data quality; it is also best to use *.A files as generated by a Pawley refinement and to then use //cf_in_A_matrix//. No weak observed reflections within the observed Ewald sphere should be assigned by setting //fraction_reflections_weak// to zero. Instead weak reflections can be included by extending the Ewald sphere with something like: | ||

+ | |||

+ | extend_calculated_sphere_to 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections = 90 Ramp(1, 0, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | If the Ewald sphere is extended such that the weak reflections are many then some of these weak reflections could well be of high intensity. Subsequently offsetting high intensity weak reflections by a constant could lead to too much perturbation and thus the following may be preferential: | ||

+ | |||

+ | extend_calculated_sphere_to 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections = Rand(-180,180) Ramp(1, 0, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | In a Pawley refinement the calculated intensities at the low //d//-spcaing edge of are often in error to a large extent; it is therefore best to remove these reflections using //delete_observed_reflections//, for example example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | delete_observed_reflections = D_spacing < 1.134; | ||

+ | |||

+ | A typical first try INP file template for powders is as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | macro Nr { 100 } | ||

+ | |||

+ | charge_flipping | ||

+ | |||

+ | cf_in_A_matrix PAWLEY_FILE.A | ||

+ | a # b # c al # be # ga # | ||

+ | |||

+ | delete_observed_reflections = D_spacing < #; | ||

+ | |||

+ | extend_calculated_sphere_to # | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections = 90 Ramp(1, 0, Nr); | ||

+ | |||

+ | flip_regime_2 = Ramp(1, 0, Nr); | ||

+ | |||

+ | symmetry_obey_0_to_1 = Ramp(0.5, 1, Nr); | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.1.4 The algorithm of Oszlányi & Süto (2005) and F000 ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Normalized structure factors enhances the chances of finding a solution ([[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]], 2006) and are realized by inclusion of //f_atom_type//’s and when //correct_for_temperature_effects// is non-zero. Example CF-1A7Y-GABOR.INP implements the algorithm of [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]] (2005) with normalized structure factors. In the original algorithm the amount of charge flipped is a function of the maximum electron density; this can be realized using: | ||

+ | |||

+ | user_threshold = 0.2 Get(max_density_at_cycle_iter_0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Get(max_density_at_cycle_iter_0) is a different value at the start of each CF process as phases are chosen randomly. An alternative means of defining the threshold is: | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_density_to_flip 0.83 | ||

+ | |||

+ | The CF process is sensitive to the threshold value. A value of 0.83 for //fraction_density_to_flip// is optimum for //1a7y// and produces a solution in ~1000 iterations. A solution is not found however at 0.75 or 0.85. To overcome this sensitivity the //fraction_density_to_flip// parameter could be ramped as a function of iteration from a high value to a low value, or, | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_density_to_flip = Ramp(0.85, 0.8, 100); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Implementation of such a ramp solves 1a7y in ~2000 iterations. | ||

+ | |||

+ | F000 is allowed to float when //scale_F000// is set to 1. In the [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]] (2005) algorithm a floating F000 produces the best results for some structures but not for others (see section 11.2.3). | ||

+ | |||

+ | When the electron density is perturbed then a floating F000 often produces unfavourable oscillations in //R//-factors. In general the electron density is best left unperturbed when //scale_F000// is non-zero. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Example CF-1A7Y-GABOR.INP does not seem to solve at a lower resolution, try for example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | delete_observed_reflections = D_spacing < 1.1; | ||

+ | |||

+ | On the other hand when //scale_F000// is zero then electron density perturbations are possible; CF_1A7Y.INP solves //1a7y// at 1.1 Angstrom (ie. include “//delete_observed_reflections// = D_spacing < 1.1”); CF_1A7Y.INP uses //flip_regime_2// and the tangent formula. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ===== 11.2 Charge-flipping Investigations / Tutorials ===== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The effects of CF keywords can be investigated by inclusion/exclusion of keywords or by changing equations. This section lists some investigative examples and highlights the use of keywords necessary to solve particular examples found in the CF directory. | ||

+ | |||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.1 Preventing uranium atom solutions using pick_atoms ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Example CF-1A7Y-OMIT.INP uses //pick_atoms// to modify the peaks of the highest intensity atoms as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | |||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_to 5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | omit = Rand(1, 1.1); | ||

+ | |||

+ | This example additionally uses the tangent formula and //1a7y// solves in ~100 iterations and with a large contrast in //R//-factors before and at converegnce. Another means to modify the peaks are: | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_to 5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | insert = Rand(-.1, 1); | ||

+ | |||

+ | The //insert// case is slightly slower than the //omit// case as the 5 atoms are first omitted before insertion. Each case however solves //1a7y// in a similar number of iterations. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Example CF-1A7Y-NO-TANGENT.INP is similar but without the tangent formula, //1a7y// in this case solves in ~1000 iterations. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.2 The tangent formula on powder data ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | In CF-ALVO4.INP comment out the Tangent line as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | ‘ Tangent(.5, 50) | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-ALVO4.INP and turn on Octahedra viewing in the OpenGL window. Visual inspection of picked atoms should show electron densities that are not recognizable as correct solutions. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Include the Tangent line and rerun; after a minute or two and at the bottom of the Ramps visual inspection of picked atoms should show a well defined solution. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Thus use of the tangent formula assists in solving CF-ALVO4.INP. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.3 Pseudo symmetry – 441 atom oxide ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | CF works particularly well on pseudo symmetric structures ([[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] //et el.,// 2006). Example CF-PN-02.INP is an oxide structure that contains 441 atom in the asymmetric unit (Lister //et el.,// 2004); run CF to convergence. Pick atoms and turn on Octahedra viewing; all polyhedra should be well formed. Thus CF works extremely fast and trivializes the solving of such structures. The contents of the INP file is as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | charge_flipping | ||

+ | |||

+ | cf_hkl_file 020pn.hkl | ||

+ | |||

+ | space_group Pn | ||

+ | |||

+ | a 24.1332 | ||

+ | |||

+ | b 19.5793 | ||

+ | |||

+ | c 25.1091 | ||

+ | |||

+ | be 99.962 | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_reflections_weak 0.4 | ||

+ | |||

+ | symmetry_obey_0_to_1 .3 | ||

+ | |||

+ | Tangent(.25, 30) | ||

+ | |||

+ | load f_atom_type f_atom_quantity | ||

+ | |||

+ | { | ||

+ | |||

+ | MO = 42 2; | ||

+ | |||

+ | P = (126 - 42) 2; | ||

+ | |||

+ | O = (441 - 126) 2; | ||

+ | |||

+ | } | ||

+ | |||

+ | The tangent formula is used to assist //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// and to assist in finding the solution faster; it is not necessary for this example however. The [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]] (2005) algorithm can be used by replaceing //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// and the Tangent line with the following: | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_F000 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_reflections_weak .4 | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections 90 | ||

+ | |||

+ | user_threshold = 0.15 Get(max_density_at_cycle_iter_0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Slow convergence is then observed and the reason is the use of F000. This is opposite to the case of //1a7y// in CF-1A7Y-GABOR.INP where F000 is necessary. Setting //scale_F000// to zero greatly increases the rate of convergence. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.4 Origin finding and symmetry_obey_0_to_1 ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | When //symmetry_obey_0_to_1 is// defined origin finding is performed each iteration of charge flipping. Symmetry elements of the space group are used in finding an origin. On finding an origin the electron density is shifted to a position that best matches the symmetry of the space group. Additionally a restraint is placed on the electron density pixels forcing symmetry to be obeyed. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-AE14.INP to convergence; notice the //P-1// symmetry. Remove //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// and run to convergence; the origin should now be arbitrary. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.5 symmetry_obey_0_to_1 on poor resolution data ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-AE5.INP until a solution is found; terminate CF, this saves the phase information to the file AE5.FC. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Copy AE5.FC to AE5-SAVE.FC. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Place the following lines into the file CF-AE5-POOR.INP | ||

+ | |||

+ | set_initial_phases_to ae5-save.fc | ||

+ | |||

+ | randomize_initial_phases_by 0 | ||

+ | |||

+ | This simply starts CF with optimum phase values. Also include the following line: | ||

+ | |||

+ | symmetry_obey_0_to_1 .75 | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-AE5-POOR.INP; the atom positions after picking should visually produce the correct result. Comment out //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// and rerun CF-AE5-POOR.INP. //R//-factors should diverge and picked atoms should show a non-solution. Thus //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// assists in solving CF-AE5-POOR.INP. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Include //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// and remove //set_initial_phases_to// and //randomize_initial_phases_by// and then rerun CF-AE5-POOR.INP. A solution should be obtained in a few minutes. Note that in this example the default flipping regime leads to regular occurrences of uranium atom solutions; this can be trivially ascertained by viewing the electron density. To reduce the occurrences of uranium atom solutions the following flipping regime is used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | flip_regime_3 0.5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.6 Sharpening clouds - extend_calculated_sphere_to ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | Example CF-AE9-POOR.INP demonstrates the limit to which the present CF implementation can operate. Single crystal data is purposely chosen to isolate resolution effects and not intensity errors. The tangent formula is critical where without it the CF process is extremely perturbed and unstable. “flip_regime_3 .5” is used due to occurrences of uranium atom solutions. | ||

+ | |||

+ | There are no ramps, instead the CF process is restarted when the //R//-factor fails to decrease for 100 consecutive iterations, or, | ||

+ | |||

+ | break_cycle_if_true = Get(iters_since_last_best) > 100; | ||

+ | |||

+ | randomize_phases_on_new_cycle_by = Rand(-180, 180); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Half of the observed reflections are considered weak and additionally missing reflections up to 1 Angstrom are included and considered weak using: | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_reflections_weak 0.5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | extend_calculated_sphere_to 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | The intensities of weak reflections are left untouched and instead a Pi/2 phase shift is randomly applied to ~30% of weak reflections as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections = If(Rand(0, 1) < .3, 90, 0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | A //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// of 0.7 is used not merely to find an origin but rather to prevent the electron density from straying. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-AE9-POOR.INP and a solution should be clearly recognizable after a few minutes. Change/remove keywords and rerun to view effects. Examples CF-CIME-POOR.INP and CF-AE5-POOR.INP are similar. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.7 A difficult powder, CF-SUCROSE.INP ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | CF-SUCROSE.INP without //scale_density_below_threshold=0// exhibits large oscillations in //R//-factors resulting in difficult to identify solutions; this can be prevented by increasing the amount of charge flipped and including //scale_density_below_threshold=0//, for example | ||

+ | |||

+ | fraction_density_to_flip 0.83 | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_density_below_threshold 0 | ||

+ | |||

+ | When //scale_density_below_threshold=0// is used the percentage of charge that is less than the threshold before the application of //scale_density_below_threshold// is reported; the difference between this reported value and (1-//fraction_density_to_flip//) gives the amount of flipped pixels that survived //scale////_density_below_threshold//. At //fraction_density_to_flip// of 0.83 approximately 23% of pixels survives //scale_density_below_threshold=0// which in effect means that only 23% of pixels are actually flipped out of the original 83%. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //picked_atoms// is used as a perturbation where 30% of atoms are omitted using: | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | activate = Cycle_Iter == 0; | ||

+ | |||

+ | insert = If(Rand(0, 1) > 0.3, 10, 0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Note that atoms are inserted at an intensity that is 10 times the average intensity. This increases the weight of inserted atoms relative to electron density noise. It also initially gives more weight to weak reflections. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Use of //scale_density_below_threshold// often results in CF requiring more interations to solution; a solution however is preferable to no solution. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ==== 11.2.8 Increasing contrast in R-factors ==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The act of flipping introduces an appreciable amount of unwanted high frequencies in the structure factors. This effect can be reduced by dampening high frequencies using //apply_exp_scale// which is ON by default. //apply_exp_scale changes R//-factors and not phases, directions taken by CF are unchanged. | ||

+ | |||

+ | Run CF-1A7Y.INP until convergence. The difference in //R//-factors before and at convergence should be ~0.39 (ie. 0.81 and 0.42). Turn OFF //apply_exp_scale// by including the following line: | ||

+ | |||

+ | apply_exp_scale 0 | ||

+ | |||

+ | Rerun CF-1A7Y.INP until convergence. The difference in //R//-factors before and at convergence should now be ~0.29 (ie. 0.81 and 0.52). Thus //apply_exp_scale// increases contrast in //R//-factors. Note that most of the increase seems to be realized from d-spacings less than 1 Angstrom. | ||

+ | ===== 11.4 Keywords in detail ===== | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//add_to_cloud_N// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//add_to_cloud_when// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | The current cloud is added to the GUI cloud creating a running average cloud for display purposes. //add_to_cloud_N// corresponds to the number of most recent clouds to include in the running average. //add_to_cloud_when// determines when the current cloud is to be included in the running average; here’s an example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_cloud_N 10 | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_cloud_when = Mod(Cycle_Iter, 2); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Averaged clouds eliminate noise and is effective if the cloud remains stationery which is generally the case. Note that //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// can produce translations of the cloud and should not be included when averaging clouds. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Allows for modification to phases of weak reflections. For example, to add p/2 to the phases of weak reflections then the following could be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections 90 | ||

+ | |||

+ | When //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// is defined then the intensities of weak reflections are not set to zero; instead they are left untouched meaning that their intensities are set to the values as determined by the inverse Fourier transform. See also //[[#cf_e37|scale_weak_reflections]]//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//apply_exp_scale// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Determines //a// and //b// each CF iteration such that the following is a minimum: | ||

+ | |||

+ | //R//-factor = ∑| //a// Exp(//b// / D_spacing^2) //Fc// -- //Fo// | | ||

+ | |||

+ | where //Fc// and //Fo// are the calculated and observed moduli respectively. Use of //apply_exp_scale// corrects //R//-factors in case of an incorrect temperature factor correction as applied when normalizing structure factors. Use of //apply_exp_scale// typically increases the difference between //R//-factors prior to and at convergence. //apply_exp_scale// is used by default, setting it to zero prevents its use. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ** [//cf_hkl_file// $file]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Defines the input hkl file. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//cf_in_A_matrix// $file [//scale_Aij// !E] ]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Data input is from a file created using //out_A_matrix// from a previous Pawley refinement. The correlations in $file are used to partition intensities during each iteration of charge-flipping. This partitioning is applied to structure factors as used by CF and as used by the tangent formula. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //scale_Aij// can be used to modify the A matrix off-diagonal coefficients, here are some examples: | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_Aij = Get(Aij); | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_Aij = Get(Aij)^2; ‘ the default | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_Aij = 0; ‘ Equivalent to using a Pawley generated hkl file | ||

+ | |||

+ | CF on powder data can also be initiated using standard hkl files. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//break_cycle_if_true// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Interrupts charge flipping to execute //randomize_phases_on_new_cycle_by. Cycle_Iter// is set to zero and //Cycle// is incremented//.// | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//correct_for_atomic_scattering_factors// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Structure factors are normalized when non-zero and when //f_atom_type//’s are defined. By default structure factors are normalized. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//correct_for_temperature_effects// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Attempts to remove isotropic temperature effects from the structure factors. //correct_for_temperature_effects// is ON by default, setting it to zero will prevent the correction. Normalized structure factors are realized when //correct_for_temperature_effects// is //ON// and the unit cell contents is defined using //f_atom_type// and //f_atom_quantity//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//delete_observed_reflections// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Reflections are deleted before entering CF according to //delete_observed_reflections//; it can be a function of D_spacing, for example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | delete_observed_reflections = D_spacing < 1.1; | ||

+ | |||

+ | Once deleted, observed reflections cannot be reinstated by changing //min_d//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//extend_calculated_sphere_to// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Used to sharpen electron density clouds by filling in missing reflections; added reflections are given the status of “weak”. //extend_calculated_sphere_to// can be used in conjunction with //scale_weak_reflections// and //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// to modify “weak” reflection magnitudes and phases respectively (see section 11.2.6); here’s an example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | extend_calculated_sphere_to 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections = If(Rand(0, 1) < .3, 90, 0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//f_atom_type// $type //f_atom_quantity// !E]…** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Defines atom types and number of atoms within the unit cell; used by the tangent formula in determining //E<sub>h</sub>// values and by the OpenGL display for picking atoms. For the tangent formula then realtive quantities are important. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//find_origin// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | If defined and non-zero then origin finding is turned ON. //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// defines //find_origin// by default. //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// can be used without //find_origin// by defining and setting //find_origin// to zero. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//flip_equation// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Allwows for a user defined flip; here’s an example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | flip_equation = | ||

+ | |||

+ | If(Get(density) < Get(threshold), -Get(density), Get(density)); | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//flip_regime_2// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | The elctron density is modified according to Eq. (11‑1) and then further modified using: | ||

+ | |||

+ | <sub>{{techref_files:image173.gif?264x28}}</sub>//flip_regime_2// is typically ramped from 1 to 0. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//flip_regime_3// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | The elctron density is modified according to Eq. (11‑1) and then further modified using: | ||

+ | |||

+ | <sub>{{techref_files:image175.gif?393x51}}</sub>A value of 0.5 for //flip_regime_3// introduces little perturbation whilst reducing the occurance of uranium atom solutions. It is recommended that //flip_regime_3// be used in cases where //flip_regime_2// produces uranium atom solutions. An additional perturbation, such as “//add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections//=90;” may be necessary. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//fraction_density_to_flip// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | The amount of charge flipped is fractionally based. A value of 0.6, for example, sets the threshold //d// such that the sign of the lowest 60% of charge is changed. Get(//threshold//) can be used to retrieve //d//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//fraction_reflections_weak// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Defines the fraction of observed reflections to flag as “weak”. When //scale_weak_reflections//, //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// and //extend_calculated_sphere_to// are all not defined then intensities of weak reflections are set to zero effectively removing them from the charge flipping process. Otherwise intensities of weak reflections are not set to zero; instead they are left untouched prior to //scale_weak_reflections// and //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// and space group family averaging. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//histogram_match_scale_fwhm// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//hm_size_limit_in_fwhm// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//hm_covalent_fwhm// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | An implementation of Histogram Matching (Baerlocher //et al.,// 2007) where the distribution of pixels within the unit cell is restrained to one that mathes Gaussian atoms with intensities corresponding to the atoms defined by //f_atom_type//‘s. The Histogram matching operation is performed when // ////histogram_match_scale_fwhm// evaluates to a non-zero value. Subsequently the full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the Gaussians (obtained from the file ATOM_RADIUS.DEF) is scaled by //histogram_match_scale_fwhm. hm_size_limit_in_fwhm// corresponds to the extent to which the Gaussians are calculated in units of FWHM. Covalent radii is used if //hm_covalent_fwhm evaluates// to a non-zero value otherwise ionic radii is used. An example use is as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | histogram_match_scale_fwhm = If(Mod(Cycle_Iter, 3), 0, 1); | ||

+ | |||

+ | hm_size_limit_in_fwhm 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | hm_covalent_fwhm 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | Reported on is the fraction of pixels modified; values of 1 for both //histogram_match_scale_fwhm// and //hm_size_limit_in_fwhm// seem optimal where typically ~15 to 20% of pixels are modified. Use of histogram matching should produce //R//-factors at convergence that are equal to or than less //R//-factors produced when not using histogram matching. Histogram matching sharpens the electron density cloud for data at poor resolution (see examples CF-CIME-HISTO.INP and CF-CIME-POOR-HISTO.INP). | ||

+ | |||

+ | ** [//min_d// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Determines in Angstroms the resolution of observed reflections to work with; only observed reflections with a d-spacing above //min_d// are considered. //min_d// is evaluated each CF iteration. Get(//num_observed_reflections_above_d_min//) is updated when a change in //min_d// is detected. See also //[[#cf_e36|extend_calculated_sphere_to]]// and //[[#cf_e38|delete_observed_reflections]]//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//min_grid_spacing// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | If defined then the grid spacing used is set to the smaller of //min_d///2 and //min_grid_spacing//; useful for obtaining many grid points for graphical purposes. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//neutron_data//]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Signals that the input data is of neutron type. Used in the picking of atoms and additionally //E<sub>h</sub>// values are not corrected from any defined //f_atom_type// and //f_atom_quantity// keywords. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//pick_atoms// $atoms]****...** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//activate// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//choose_from// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//choose_to// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//choose_randomly// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//omit// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//displace// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//insert// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | //pick_atoms// modifies the electron density based on picked atoms. $atom corresponds to the atom types to be operated on; it can contain the wild card character ‘*’ and the negation character ‘!’, see section 7.6 for details. The operations of //pick_atoms// are invoked when //activate// evaluates to a non-zero value; for example, | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms “O C” | ||

+ | |||

+ | activate = Mod(Cycle_Iter, 20) == 0; | ||

+ | |||

+ | The picking routine will attempts to locate the atom types found in $atom based on the intensities of picked atoms and the scattering power of the atoms defined in //f_atom_type//. For example, | ||

+ | |||

+ | load f_atom_type f_atom_quantity { Ca 2 O 10 C 12 } | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms “O C” | ||

+ | |||

+ | Here 2 Ca atoms are first picked and then 10 O atoms and then 12 C atoms. The picked atoms operated on will be the O and C atoms with the Ca atoms ignored. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //choose_from// and //choose_to// can be used to limit the number of atoms operated on. Note, that picked atoms within a particular //pick_atoms// are sorted in decreasing intensity order. For example, to not operate on the first thee O atoms and the last 2 C atoms then the following could be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_from 4 | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_to 20 | ||

+ | |||

+ | //choose_randomly// further reduces the atoms operated on and is exected after //choose_from// and //choose_to//. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //omit// removes operated on atoms from the electron density. Atoms can be partially removed by setting //omit// to values less than 1. Values greater than 1 can also be used, the effect is to change the sign of the electron density. //omit// operating on a few of the highest intensity atoms is an extremely effective means of preventing the occurance of uranium atom solutions, see CF-1A7Y-OMIT.INP; for example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_to 5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | omit = Rand(1, 1.1); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Omitting atoms randomly is a technique referred to as “random omit maps“ in ShelXD, [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Schneider,%20T.R.|(Schneider]] and [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Sheldrick,%20G.M.|Sheldrick]], 2002). | ||

+ | |||

+ | //insert// inserts operated on atoms; a value of 1 inserts the atoms with an intensity that is equal to the average of the picked atoms. Values of less than 1 descreases the intensity of the inserted atoms. When //insert// is defined then //omit// is internally defined if it does not already exist. Thus, atoms are removed before insertion by default. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //displace// (in Angstroms) displaces atom positions from their picked positions; it is evaluated before //insert//. For example, to randomly displace atoms by 0.3 Angstroms then the following could be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | displace = Rand(0.4, 0.6); | ||

+ | |||

+ | insert 1 | ||

+ | |||

+ | There can be more than one occurance of //pick_atoms//, for example to limit uranium atom solutions then the follow can be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | choose_to 5 | ||

+ | |||

+ | insert = Rand(-.1, 1); | ||

+ | |||

+ | To further randomly remove ~33% of atoms then the following could additionally be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | break_cycle_if_true = Get(iters_since_last_best) > 10; | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms * | ||

+ | |||

+ | activate = Cycle_Iter == 0; | ||

+ | |||

+ | insert = If(Rand(0, 1) > 0.33, 10, 0); | ||

+ | |||

+ | Note that in this example atoms are inserted at ten times the average picked intensity; this simply gives more weight to picked atoms relative to electron density noise. Additionaly weak reflections are also given more weighting. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//pick_atoms_when// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Atoms are picked in the OpenGL display when //pick_atoms_when// evaluates to a non-zero value; here’s an example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | pick_atoms_when = Mod(Cycle_Iter + 1, 10) == 0; | ||

+ | |||

+ | Note that picking can be manually initiated from the Cloud dialog of the OpenGL display. A text description of picked atoms can be obtained by opening the “Temporary output” text window of the OpenGL window. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//randomize_initial_phases_by// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Initializes phases. To start a process with already saved phase information then the following could be used: | ||

+ | |||

+ | set_initial_phases_to aleady_saved.fc | ||

+ | |||

+ | randomize_initial_phases_by 0 ' this has a default of Rand(-180,180) | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//randomize_phases_on_new_cycle_by// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | randomize_phases_on_new_cycle_by = Rand(-180, 180); ‘ an example | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//scale_density_below_threshold// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Electron density pixels that are less than the threshold value are scaled by //scale////_density_below_threshold//. Values for //scale////_density_below_threshold// thata re less than 1 tends to sharpen the electron density and to reduce large oscillations in //R//-factors; the latter occurs for bad data, see example CF-SUCROSE.INP. A value of zero for //scale////_density_below_threshold// results in “low density elimination“ simlar to that of Shiono & Woolfson (1992). | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//scale_E// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Normalized structure factors (//E<sub>h</sub>// values) are a function of //correct_for_temperature_effects// and unit cell contents. //scale_E// allows for an additional scaling of //E<sub>h</sub>// values. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//scale_F// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | CF works with normalized structure factors by default. //scale_F// is an additional scaling of structure factors. The defualt //scale_F// broadens electron density peaks to avoid pixilation effects and is given by: | ||

+ | |||

+ | scale_F = Exp(-0.2 Get(d_squared_inverse)); | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//scale_F000// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Scale should be set to 1 for compliance with the algorithm of [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=Oszl%26aacute;nyi,%20G.|Oszlányi]] & [[http://scripts.iucr.org/cgi-bin/citedin?search_on=name&author_name=S%26uuml;to,%20A.|Süto]] (2004). When //scale_F000// is non_zero then modifcations to the electron density produces unfavourable effects. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//scale_weak_reflections// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | By default weak reflection structure factors are set to zero; however when either //scale_weak_reflections// or //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// is defined then weak reflections structure factors are instead modified accordingly, for example: | ||

+ | |||

+ | //scale_weak_reflections = Rand(-0.2, 0.4);// | ||

+ | |||

+ | //scale_weak_reflections// or //add_to_phases_of_weak_reflections// can be a function of D_spacing. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//set_initial_phases_to// $file]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//modify_initial_phases// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | Sets initial phases to those appearing in $file. Typically $file corresponds to a *.FC file saved in a previous charge-flipping process. //modify_initial_phases// is executed each iteration of CF; it can be used to restrain the phases of $file. For example, | ||

+ | |||

+ | modify_initial_phases = | ||

+ | |||

+ | Get(initial_phase) + Min(Abs(Get(phase_difference)), 45); | ||

+ | |||

+ | where phase_difference corresponds to the difference between the current phase and the initial phase; it has a value between ±90º. //modify_initial_phases// can be used to constrain phases to those as determined by HRTEM (Baerlocher //et al.//, 2007)//.// | ||

+ | |||

+ | |||

+ | **[//space_group// $]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | If defined then the //cf_hkl_file// is assumed to comprise merged hkls corresponding to the defined space group; otherwise the //cf_hkl_file// is assumed to be of space group type //P1.// | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//symmetry_obey_0_to_1// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | If a space group is defined then symmetry is adhered to according to //symmetry_obey_0_to_1//. //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// can be through of as a real space electron density restraint; its value should range between 0 and 1. If 1 then symmetry is obeyed 100%. //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// is implemented follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | For a particular set of equivalent grid points as determined by the equivalent positions of the space group an average density //r//<sub>avg</sub> is obtained. The electron densities on the grid points are then adjusted as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | //r//<sub>new</sub> = //r// (1 - symmetry_obey_0_to_1) + symmetry_obey_0_to_1 //r//<sub>avg</sub> | ||

+ | |||

+ | The text output 'symmetry error' as displayed when //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// is used is defined as follows: | ||

+ | |||

+ | 'symmetry error' = <sub>{{techref_files:image177.gif?127x29}}</sub> | ||

+ | |||

+ | where the summation is over all of the electron density grid points. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// defines //find_origin// by default. //find_origin// is applied before //symmetry_obey_0_to_1//. //find_origin// shifts the electron density such that an approximate error in 'symmetry error' is minimized; thus //find_origin// assists in the //symmetry_obey_0_to_1// restraint. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //tangent_num_h_read// and //tangent_num_k_read// defines the number of highest //h// and highest //k// reflections to read in determining triplets. | ||

+ | |||

+ | //tangent_num_h_keep// defines the number of highest //h// reflections to include for tangent formula updating. | ||

+ | |||

+ | **[//user_threshold// !E]** | ||

+ | |||

+ | By default Get(//threshold//) is determined using //fraction_density_to_flip//. When defined then //user_threshold// overrides //fraction_density_to_flip//. Electron density pixels are normalized to have a maximum value of 1, thus typical values for //user_threshold// range between 0 and 0.1. | ||

+ | Sets initial phases to those saved in a previous *.FC file. The FC file used corresponds to the same name as the data file, defined using //cf_hkl_file// or //cf_in_A_matrix//, but with a FC extension. //use_Fc// is similar to //set_initial_phases_to// except that the file used is implied. | ||
