Synopsis: It has been found that the two positive glitches observed at 1385.6 and 1438 eV in the transmission function of the YB66 double-crystal monochromator are caused by the anomalous increases of the reflective intensity of the 006 reflection at the yttrium LIII and LII absorption edges. The intensities of these two glitches are reduced to minimal values by the installation of an SiC cut-off mirror downstream from the YB66 monochromator.

Synopsis: By comparison of the accuracy and the merging R factor (Rmerge) of artificially created X-ray data sets, it is demonstrated that Rmerge is a poor predictor for the precision of X-ray data. The more often a given reflection is observed, the more precise the average intensity is, whereas Rmerge has a tendency to be higher at higher data redundancy.

Synopsis: DEBVIN is a program that combines the Rietveld approach with the use of generalized coordinates. It is a particularly useful tool when, as in polymer crystallography, structures are rather complex and diffraction patterns highly overlapped and confined to low diffraction angles. Refinement of crystallite dimensions is also a qualifying feature of this program.
