[phenixbb] f', f'' of Bromide?

Hi TriNgo

I would suggest (1) see if you can ask the staff at the synchrotron about the f' and f" values for Br at the wavelengths you used, then if that fails, then (2) just enter in the AutoSol GUI the wavelengths and Br and hit "guess f' and f" values".  This will look up values from a table of scattering factors. The values will be refined for you by AutoSol. If you have a strong anomalous signal then even if they are off this will work fine. However if the signal is weak then having the actual values can be helpful.

All the best,
Tom T
