Hi Beth:

I suggest that you not use kw=3 as that will make these background subtraction oscillations worse.

Another thing you can try is to cut down the high end of your spline range to 13, then 12.5 and see if that makes it behave a bit better. I find that it helps a lot when the data is a bit noisy or there is a slightly wavy background. I also look at the FT to see how the background spline is doing.

Hi all,

I am analyzing some sulfur K-edge EXAFS data taken at 4-3 at SSRL. When I use a 
k-weight of k^3 to plot, my oscillations at high k reach over 100, which 
doesn't make sense to me. I have looked over the data with Riti, and it seems 
that while the XANES are rather self-absorbed due to high concentrations of 
sulfur-containing salt, the data can be normalized, and the EXAFS should 
contain some information. I've included screenshots in the attachment of plots 
of all of the k-weights as well as my parameters. The mixtures are solutions of 
organics (acetonitrile, 1,1,2,2-Tetrafluoroethyl 2,2,3,3-tetrafluoropropyl 
ether) with bis(trifluoromethane)sulfonimide lithium salt. I am also not 
hitting any other edges, as sulfur is the highest Z element in the solution. 
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
