The SSRL Absorption Package

The Absorption package from SSRL (The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory) is a series of fortran routines for calculating anomalous dispersion corrections, atomic form factors and scattering cross sections. The routines for f' and f'' are based on theoretical work of Cromer and Liberman. The Rayleigh and Compton cross-sections are based on McMaster. Hydrogen and Helium data are McMasters for photo-electric effect as well as Rayleigh and Compton. Also available are form factor tables for calculating f(k) using theoretical work of Cromer and Mann. There is a driver program for calculating the absorption of elements, crystals and materials and subroutines for calculating complex structure factors for crystals.
