Athena, Artemis, and Hephaestus
Athena is an interactive graphical utility for processing EXAFS data. It handles most of the common data handling chores of interest, including deglitching, aligning, merging, background removal, Fourier transforms, and much more. Athena is based on the Ifeffit library. In the not-too-distant future, Athena will also support the use of Larch.
Artemis is an interactive graphical utility for fitting EXAFS data using theoretical standards from FEFF and sophisticated data modelling along with flexible data visualization and statistical analysis. Artemis includes interfaces to Atoms and Feff. Artemis is based on the Ifeffit library. In the not-too-distant future, Artemis will also support the use of Larch.
Hephaestus is a souped up periodic table for the x-ray absorption spectroscopist. It is especially handy at the beamline, providing a number of utilities involving tables of absorption coefficients and other chemical data.
