Manuscript Title: REX: a least-squares fitting program for the simulation and analysis of X-ray reflectivity data.
Authors: T.A. Crabb, P.N. Gibson, K.J. Roberts
Program title: REX
Catalogue identifier: ACPI_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 77(1993)441
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: SUN 4.0.
Operating system: UNIX.
Keywords: Crystallography, X-ray reflectivity, Roughness, Thickness, Thin films, Anomalous dispersion, Multiple pattern fitting.
Classification: 8.

Nature of problem:
Interpretation of X-ray reflectivity spectra from thin films or multilayers.

Solution method:
Interactive least-squared-fitting of experimental data to theoretical model [2] including roughness [3] [4] and anomalous dispersion effects [1]. Multiple pattern fitting of spectra taken at different wavelengths is allowed.
