Hi all,

I have a question about how does Cryson calculate scattering intensity( included in *.int file) using partial scattering amplitude outputs (included in *.alm file). According to equation 11 in crysol 1995 paper, the partial scattering amplitudes in alm file should be the Sum of the scattering amplitudes for atoms, excluded volume and border.

alm file looks like following,

Evaliuated from pdb file ............................... : sle1s3.33-capb0.39-nacl3.01-noprm.pdb
Max order of harmonics ................................. : 15
Number of points ....................................... : 256

L: 0 M: 0
0.000000000000000E+000 (1192.92431640625,0.000000000000000E+000)
3.490196075290442E-003 (1181.47119140625,0.000000000000000E+000)
6.980392150580883E-003 (1148.36633300781,0.000000000000000E+000)
1.047058869153261E-002 (1095.48767089844,0.000000000000000E+000)
1.396078430116177E-002 (1026.04614257812,0.000000000000000E+000)


I assume that column 1 is scattering vector and column 2 and 3 are real and imaginary parts of partial scattering amplitudes. So I also assume adding the scattering amplitudes for different L and M at each scattering vector would give me scattering intensity. However, these numbers don't add up to the intensity file cryson prints out. I am wondering if anyone could help with this? ( corresponding alm file and int file are attached )

Thank you very much in advance!

You have to count all the non-zero M values twice (the values for positive and negative M are the same, so only the value for positive M is recorded)

(or possibly the value for negative M is the complex conjugate of the value for positive M; in any case it's the same once you take the square modulus)

Thanks for your replies! I now consider the M negative cases as you suggested. Now the intensity it calculated have the same number as the cryson output(int file) with multiplied by 20. Any particular reason it have to be multiplied by 20??? Thank you and looking forward to your replies!
