"Spectrum Fitter" 2015 Daniel C. Elton
The module spectrum_fitter.py provides an obect-oriented framework for fitting dielectric spectra.
The fitting is performed with the constraint of the f-sum rule.
The longitudinal dielectric function can also be fit with minor modification of the code. Plots of the longitudinal fit and data (1 - 1/eps(omega)) are provided as an additional way to check the fit.
An example of how to use spectrum_fitter.py is given in "fit_dielectric_spectrum_transverse_test.py" using the refractive index data compiled by Sigelstein, which can be found in the file "Siegelstein.RI"
There are a few additional python scripts included in this git: -- epsL_epsT.py - plots dielectric functions, etc -- EpsLT.py - plots dielectric functions from index of refraction data at a variety of temperatures and attempts to locate peak maxima and park them with a line -- kw.py - code for calculating k-dependent susceptibilities from k-dependent polarization-polarization correlation function data
