This menu (NIST format) will create an output file of raw (uncorrected, un-normalized) intensities for standard or unknown samples and count times, deadtimes, beam current and x, y, z coordinates and relative distance in microns, raw k-ratios and corrected unknown and standard intensities. These last three items are corrected for deadtime, beam current and normalized to cps in addition to background, Time Dependent Intensity (TDI), area peak factors and spectral interference corrections.
Note that the x-ray intensities are output in total raw counts at the actual beam current of acquisition.
This file format was specified by The National Institute of Standards and Technology and cannot be modified for other applications.
LINE Data file line number
RAWONCNT Raw on-peak intensity (no correction)
RAWHICNT Raw high off peak intensity (no correction)
RAWLOCNT Raw low off peak intensity (no correction)
RAWOFCNT Raw background intensity (no correction)
ONTIM Actual on peak count time
HITIM Actual high off peak count time
LOTIM Actual low off peak count time
DETIM Deadtime in micro-seconds
BEAMCUR Faraday or beam current reading in nano-amps
X-POS Stage x axis position
Y-POS Stage x axis position
Z-POS Stage x axis position
RELDIST Stage distance in relative microns
K-RAW Raw k-ratio (corrected)
UNCNT Unknown count intensity (corrected)
STCNT Standard count intensity (corrected)
Note that RELDIST is the accumulated number of microns between each data point with the first point of each sample reset to zero.
