There is a new program called "Scatfac" as  part of the LMGP suite
for Windows by Jean Laugier and Bernard Bochu.

Scatfac is an X-ray Atomic Scattering factor display software which 
   can display 1 to 2 elements on the screen.

Scatfac can also output the data to an ASCII file

Screen dumps and tutorial runthrough:

Download via:


This is complementary to DISPANO - Anomalous Scattering factor display
software which has the option of using either "Brenann and Cowan" or 
"Sasaki" data:


If you wish to link Scatfac or Dispano into your crystallographic
software, contact Jean Laugier at jean.laugier2 at who
can provide information on the best way to transparently call
the programs to pass the required Scattering factor data to
the calling program.  This could be useful for structure
refinement software which may only carry data for tube

LMGP Suite software is freely usable by anyone: Students, academics
and people working in commercial companies.
