Calculates the form factor, P(q), for a monodisperse spherical particle with a core-shell structure. The form factor is normalized by the total particle volume.
Resolution smeared version is also provided.
Input Variables (default values):
|1||Core Radius (Å)||60.0|
|2||Shell Thickness (Å)||10.0|
|3||Core SLD (Å-2)||1.0e-6|
|4||Shell SLD (Å-2)||2.0e-6|
|5||Solvent SLD (Å-2)||3.0e-6|
The function calculated is:
where , , and . The returned value is scaled to units of [cm-1].
Parameter (scale) and the SLD's are multiplicative factors in the model and are perfectly correlated. No more than one of these parameters can be free during the model fitting.
If the scale factor Parameter is set equal to the particle volume fraction, phi, the returned value is the scattered intensity per unit volume, I(q) = phi*P(q). However, no interparticle interference effects are included in this calculation.
Scattering from monodisperse vesicles can be calculated by setting the core SLD equal to the solvent SLD.

This example dataset is produced by calculating the CoreShell, using 256 data points, qmin = 0.001 Å-1, qmax = 0.7 Å-1 and the above default coefficient values.
