Hi all I've collected some more data, and am still getting spurious results, and by spurious, I mean -5 wt% amorphous in SRM-alpha-656 when quantified by the external method against SRM 676a.
We had some SRM-656alpha (couldn't find any of the beta) stored in a drying oven, and some SRM676a stored in a cupboard. I collected some data using a D8 with Ni-filtered Cu and a lynx-eye detector (0.25° fixed divergence, 250 mm radius, 2x2.5° sollers). The patterns were collected consecutively (using the same program), with a single peak from SRM1976 (b, I think), acting as an intensity calibrant (the intensity didn't appreciably change), collected before, after, and between. Does anybody want to have a look at the data and see what I'm doing wrong?
