Stephens_peakshape

Description: Stephens peak shape broadening macros

Contributed by: Peter Stephens, Robert Dinnebier, Andreas Leinweber

An alternative approach to spherical harmonics for hkl dependent peak shapes by Peter Stephens (P.W. Stephens, J. Appl. Cryst. (1999) 32, 281-9) as coded in gsas. eta term allows mixture of Gauss/Lorentz broadening.

Built in macros for different point groups are:

Stephens_triclinic (-1)
Stephens_monoclinic (2/m)
Stephens_orthorhombic (mmm)
Stephens_tetragonal_low (4/m)
Stephens_tetragonal_high (4/mmm)
Stephens_trigonal_low (-3)
Stephens_trigonal_high (-3m1)
Stephens_trigonal_high_2 (-31m)
Stephens_hexagonal (6/m and 6/mmm)
Stephens_cubic (m-3 and m-3m)

Note that for all trigonal Laue classes the macros assume the hexagonal setting of the unit cell

As an example try the following in your input file (macros you need are below). Look in topas.inc to double-check the format of macros:
