bioxtasraw.SECM.
SECM
(file_list, sasm_list, frame_list, parameters, settings)¶ Bases:
object
Series measurement object. Was originally a SECSAXS measurement (SECM) object. Contains all the information about a series, including the individual scattering profiles, subtracted scattering profiles, baseline corrected scattering profiles, calculated parameter values such as Rg, total and mean intensity for each profile, information about selected buffer ranges and baseline correction ranges, etc.
Variables:  qref (float) – The reference q value specified by
I()
.  qrange (tuple) – The q range specified by
calc_qrange_I()
.  buffer_range (list) – A list defining the set buffer range. The list is made up of a set
of subranges, each defined by an entry in the list. Each subrange
item should be a list or tuple where the first entry is the
starting index of the range and the second entry is the ending index
of the range. So a list like
[[0, 10], [100, 110]]
would define a buffer range consisting of two subranges, the first from profiles 010 in the series and the second from profiles 100110 in the series.  window_size (int) – The size of the average window used when calculating parameters such as Rg.
 mol_type (str) – The macromolecule type used when calculating the Vc M.W.
 mol_density (float) – The macromolecular density used when calculating the Vp M.W.
 already_subtracted (bool) – Whether the initial input profiles represent an already subtracted series or not.
 average_buffer_sasm (bioxtasraw.SASM.SASM) – The average buffer profile from the buffer_range.
 baseline_start_range (tuple) – A tuple where the first item is the start of the baseline start range and the second item is the end of the baseline start range.
 baseline_end_range (tuple) – A tuple where the first item is the start of the baseline end range and the second item is the end of the baseline end range.
 baseline_corr (list) – A list of the baseline correction applied. Each item is a
bioxtasraw.SASM.SASM
, and there is one for every baseline corrected profile. The intensity is the value subtracted from the starting intensity of the corresponding profile to achieve the baseline corrected intensity.  baseline_type (str) – The baseline type.
 baseline_extrap (bool) – Whether the baseline was extrapolated to all profiles.
 baseline_fit_results (list) – Only contains items if a linear baseline correction is done. In that case, each item is the linear fit results a, b, and corresponding covariances for a given q value. There is one item per q value of the input profiles.
 sample_range (list) – A list defining the set sample range. The list is made up of a set
of subranges, each defined by an entry in the list. Each subrange
item should be a list or tuple where the first entry is the
starting index of the range and the second entry is the ending
index of the range. So a list like
[[0, 10], [100, 110]]
would define a sample range consisting of two subranges, the first from profiles 010 in the series and the second from profiles 100110 in the series.
