Dear all


I am a beginner of RMCProfile 6.7.9 user and now performing RMC simulation
using Xray F(Q) data.

My question is about .inst file.

Several parameters are found in .inst file, but I cannot clearly understand
which parameters indicate U, V, W, X, Y, Z etc..


At first, I have performed Rietveld analysis by GSAS II for making the
initial structure for RMC.

After that, the initial configuration file (.rmc6f) and 5 sets of files
(.bragg, .dat, .back, .xray and .inst) required for RMC were created by GSAS

Using these dataset, I have started RMC.


But, even for the initial Bragg data(without any movement of atoms), the
large difference was observed between the experimental and calculated data.

The results were attached. The two legends (Calculated and Experiment) are
opposite, though I don't know the reason...

The calculated data does not reproduce the experimental data(left), although
the Rietveld results (right) seem to be reasonable.


I have checked .inst file(below). 




   0.20240(wave length)   0.07129(scale?)    0.9590(Polariz.)         0(?)

   20.000(U)   -12.000(V)     4.172(W)

   1.518(X??)   103.298(Y??)     0.000(Z??)

   0.000(??)     0.000(??)     0.000(??)



It seems UVW values are the same with those derived by Rietveld analysis.

But X and Y are slightly changed and I cannot find Z and SH/L values
anywhere in .inst file.

The profile parameters have been changed during the creation of .inst file

I consider this is one of the origins that Bragg data cannot be reproduced
by RMCProfile.


In addition, the last triplet "0.000" values are completely unclear.

It seems "1.0" should be added at the end of line of .inst file.


Please tell me the meanings of the parameters in .inst file and the proper
way to reproduce the Bragg peaks in RMCProfile.
