Mosflm can process diffraction images from a wide range of detectors and produces, as output, an MTZ file of reflection indices with their intensities and standard deviations (and other parameters). This MTZ file is passed onto other programs of the CCP4 program suite (SORTMTZ, SCALA, TRUNCATE) for further data reduction.
SASfit has been written for analyzing and plotting small angle scattering data. It can calculate integral structural parameters like radius of gyration, scattering invariant, Porod constant. Furthermore it can fit size distributions together with several form factors including different structure factors. Additionally an algorithm has been implemented, which allows to simultaneously fit several scattering curves with a common set of (global) parameters. This last option is especially important in contrast variation experiments or measurements with polarised neutrons. The global fit helps to determine fit parameters unambiguously which by analyzing a single curve would be otherwise strongly correlated.
The SPRKKR band structure package allows to calculate the electronic structure of arbitrary 3-D periodic systems, including systems with chemical disorder. The treatment of 2-D periodic systems (e.g. surfaces) can be done at the moment only by using an auxiliary system having three dimensional periodicity or by making use of the cluster approximation. The electronic structure calculation can be done in a non-relativistic, scalar-relativistic as well as fully relativistic mode. In the scalar-relativistic mode paramagnetic as well as spin-polarized systems can be treated, including non-collinear spin structures and arbitrary spin spirals. In the fully relativistic mode, paramagnetic as well as spin-polarized systems with an arbitrary spin configuration can be dealt with. On the basis of the electronic structure calculation, many different properties can be investigated with a strong emphasize on response functions and spectroscopic properties.
