structure factor

[′strək·chər ‚fak·tər]
(solid-state physics)
A factor which determines the amplitude of the beam reflected from a given atomic plane in the diffraction of an x-ray beam by a crystal, and is equal to the sum of the atomic scattering factors of the atoms in a unit cell, each multiplied by an appropriate phase factor.

The research team under the direction of Michael Bonitz, professor of theoretical physics at the CAU, has now achieved a breakthrough: using complex simulations performed on supercomputers, they have developed a computational method, with which they could precisely describe the dynamic structure factor of electrons in warm dense matter for the first time.
The debt structure factor reflects our assessment of Bazalgette's consolidated future debt, which comprises various debt instruments, for a total current drawn and undrawn commitment of GBP3,275 million, including GBP1,425 million delayed-draw bonds under the EMTN programme and a GBP100 million delay-draw loan facility in addition to the RCF and EIB loan facility.
Archie [5] first studied the relationship between soil resistivity and its structure and proposed the soil structural factor-resistivity structure factor F (formation resistivity factor).
At last, the structure factor S(Q) was obtained through Ashcroft-Langreth method [13, 14].
All hydrogen atoms were then evidenced from the difference Fourier map and they were added to the structure factor calculations as fixed at 0.97 [Angstrom] from their relative attached atoms.
where SF and SP are called the structure factor and saturation parameter given by
The spectra were corrected for absorption and self-shielding and then converted to dynamic structure factor S(Q, [??]w) and interpolated at constant Q values.
Structure factor contributions due to finite concentration effects should be included.
However, the result for the unexpected term structure factor shows that unexpected term structure series are nonstationary at that level yet stationary at the first difference (series are all I (1)).
However, when factors are not orthogonal, as was seen in this analysis, larger correlations between factors result in greater differences between pattern and structure factor loadings (Pett et al.).
Note: Under Pecking order industry has and indirect effect and it is not regarded as a core capital structure factor. TABLE 2.
The SHELX website [19] cautions the use of SQUEEZE because as the complex scattering factors are estimated values that are then included in the structure factor calculations compelling reasons should be given on its use.
