The signal expected from a MAD experiment can be calculated using an approximation similar to the Crick & Magdoff equation for an MIR experiment. The form below uses this technique to estimate the signal available from a given MAD experiment. Hitting the "submit request" button will generate both pessimistic and optimistic estimates for the MAD signal available for your case.
Ideally the program should have a library of experimental results giving the achievable f' and f" terms for each element. I don't have a complete library ready yet, however, so for most elements you can only specify whether it is a K-edge experiment (8, 10) or an L-edge experiment (13, 40).Last changed: 30-Mar-2009
