rf80b416e rad476d1 9 9  10 10 11 This performs a correlation function analysis of onedimensional 12 SAXS/SANS data, or generates a modelindependent volume fraction 13 profile from the SANS from an adsorbed polymer/surfactant layer. 11 This currently performs correlation function analysis on SAXS/SANS data, 12 but in the the future is also planned to generate modelindependent volume 13 fraction profiles from the SANS from adsorbed polymer/surfactant layers. 14 The two types of analyses differ in the mathematical transform that is 15 applied to the data (Fourier vs Hilbert). However, both functions are 16 returned in *real space*. 14 17 15 18 A correlation function may be interpreted in terms of an imaginary rod moving 16 through the structure of the material. Î\ :sub:`1D`\ (R) is the probability that 17 a rod of length R moving through the material has equal electron/neutron scattering 18 length density at either end. Hence a frequently occurring spacing within a structure 19 manifests itself as a peak. 20 21 A volume fraction profile :math:`\Phi`\ (z) describes how the density of polymer segments/surfactant molecules varies with distance from an (assumed locally flat) interface. 22 23 Both functions are returned in *real space*. 24 25 The analysis is performed in 3 stages: 26 27 * Extrapolation of the scattering curve to :math:`Q = 0` and 19 through the structure of the material. Î(x) is the probability that a rod of 20 length x has equal electron/neutron scattering length density at either end. 21 Hence a frequently occurring spacing within a structure will manifest itself 22 as a peak in Î(x). *SasView* will return both the onedimensional ( Î\ :sub:`1`\ (x) ) 23 and threedimensional ( Î\ :sub:`3`\ (x) ) correlation functions, the difference 24 being that the former is only averaged in the plane of the scattering vector. 25 26 A volume fraction profile :math:`\Phi`\ (z) describes how the density of polymer 27 segments/surfactant molecules varies with distance, z, normal to an (assumed 28 locally flat) interface. The form of :math:`\Phi`\ (z) can provide information 29 about the arrangement of polymer/surfactant molecules at the interface. The width 30 of the profile provides measures of the layer thickness, and the area under 31 the profile is related to the amount of material that is adsorbed. 32 33 Both analyses are performed in 3 stages: 34 35 * Extrapolation of the scattering curve to :math:`Q = 0` and toward 28 36 :math:`Q = \infty` 29 37 * Smoothed merging of the two extrapolations into the original data 30 38 * Fourier / Hilbert Transform of the smoothed data to give the correlation 31 function /volume fraction profile, respectively32 * (Optional) Interpretation of the 1D correlation function based on an ideal33 lamellar morphology39 function or volume fraction profile, respectively 40 * (Optional) Interpretation of Î\ :sub:`1`\ (x) assuming the sample conforms 41 to an ideal lamellar morphology 34 42 35 43 ..

This has dubious applicability to polymer systems. However, the 54 correlation function is affected by the Guinier backextrapolation to the 55 greatest extent at large values of R and so only has a 56 small effect on the final analysis. 58 I(q) = A e^{Bq^2} 59 60 Where the parameter :math:`B` is related to the effective radiusofgyration of 61 a spherical object having the same smallangle scattering in this region. 62 63 Note that as q tends to zero this function tends to a limiting value and is 64 therefore less appropriate for use in systems where the form factor does not 65 do likewise. However, because of the transform, the correlation functions are 66 most affected by the Guinier backextrapolation at *large* values of x where 67 the impact on any extrapolated parameters will be least significant. 57 68 58 69 To :math:`Q = \infty` 59 70 ..................... 60 71 61 The data are extrapolated to Q = :math:`\infty` by fitting a Porod model to 62 the data points in the highQ range. 72 The data are extrapolated towards q = :math:`\infty` by fitting a Porod model to 73 the data points in the highq range and then computing the extrapolation to 100 74 times the maximum q value in the experimental dataset. This should be more than 75 sufficient to ensure that on transformation any truncation artefacts introduced 76 are at such small values of x that they can be safely ignored. 63 77 64 78 The equation used is: 65 79 66 80 .. math:: 67 I( Q) = K Q^{4}e^{Q^2\sigma^2} + Bg68 69 Where :math:`Bg` is the background, :math:`K` is the Porod 70 constant, and :math:`\sigma` (which must be > 0) describes the width of the electron or neutron scattering length density profile at the interface between the crystalline and amorphous 71 regions as shown below.81 I(q) = K q^{4}e^{q^2\sigma^2} + Bg 82 83 Where :math:`Bg` is the background, :math:`K` is the Porod constant, and :math:`\sigma` (which 84 must be > 0) describes the width of the electron/neutron scattering length density 85 profile at the interface between the crystalline and amorphous regions as shown below. 72 86 73 87 .. figure:: fig1.png … … 78 92  79 93 80 The extrapolated data set consists of the Guinier backextrapolation from Q~0 81 up to the lowest Q value in the original data, then the original scattering data, and the Porod tailfit beyond this. The joins between the original data and the Guinier/Porod fits are smoothed using the algorithm below to avoid the formation of ripples in the transformed data. 94 The extrapolated data set consists of the Guinier backextrapolation from q ~ 0 95 up to the lowest q value in the original data, then the original scattering data, 96 and then the Porod tailfit beyond this.

(if not check the value 146 of :math:`\sigma` is sensible) 147  are there ripples at x values corresponding to (2 :math:`pi` over) the two 148 q values at which the extrapolated and experimental data are merged? 149  are there any artefacts at x values corresponding to 2 :math:`pi` / q\ :sub:`max` in 150 the experimental data? 151  and lastly, do the significant features/peaks in the correlation functions 152 actually correspond to anticpated spacings in the sample?!!! 153 154 Finally, the program calculates the interface distribution function (IDF) g\ :sub:`1`\ (x) as 155 the discrete cosine transform of: 156 157 .. math:: 158 q^{4} I(q) 159 160 The IDF is proportional to the second derivative of Î\ :sub:`1`\ (x). 123 161 124 162 Hilbert 125 163 ....... 126 164 127 165 If "Hilbert" is selected for the transform type, the analysis will perform a 128 166 Hilbert transform on the extrapolated data in order to calculate the Volume 129 167 Fraction Profile. 130 168 131 .. note:: Th isfunctionality is not yet implemented in SasView.169 .. note:: The Hilbert transform functionality is not yet implemented in SasView. 132 170 133 171 … … 138 176 .................... 139 177 140 Once the correlation function has been calculated it may be interpreted by clicking the "Compute Parameters" button. 141 142 The correlation function is interpreted in terms of an ideal lamellar 143 morphology, and structural parameters are obtained from it as shown below. 144 It should be noted that a small beam size is assumed; ie, no desmearing is 145 performed. 178 Once the correlation functions have been calculated *SasView* can be asked to 179 try and interpret Î\ :sub:`1`\ (x) in terms of an ideal lamellar morphology 180 as shown below. 146 181 147 182 .. figure:: fig2.png 148 183 :align: center 149 184 150 The structural parameters obtained are:185 The structural parameters extracted are: 151 186 152 187 * Long Period :math:`= L_p` … … 160 195 ....................... 161 196 162 SasView does not provide any automatic interpretation of volume fraction profiles in the same way that it does for correlation functions.
