IFEFFIT: interactive XAFS analysis and FEFF fitting

J Synchrotron Radiat. 2001 Mar 1;8(Pt 2):322-4. doi: 10.1107/s0909049500016964.


IFEFFIT, an interactive program and scriptable library of XAFS algorithms is presented. The core algorithms of AUTOBK and FEFFIT have been combined with general data manipulation and interactive graphics into a single package. IFEFFIT comes with a command-line program that can be run either interactively or in batch-mode. It also provides a library of functions that can be used easily from C or Fortran, as well as high level scripting languages such as Tcl, Perl and Python. Using this library, a Graphical User Interface for rapid 'online' data analysis is demonstrated. IFEFFIT is freely available with an Open Source license. Outside use, development, and contributions are encouraged.
