gmx-saxs — Compute small angle X-ray scattering spectra


gmx saxs [-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>]] [-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>]] [-n [<.ndx>]]
         [-d [<.dat>]] [-sq [<.xvg>]] [-b <time>] [-e <time>]
         [-dt <time>] [-xvg <enum>] [-ng <int>] [-startq <real>]
         [-endq <real>] [-energy <real>]


gmx saxs calculates SAXS structure factors for given index groups based on Cromer's method. Both topology and trajectory files are required.


Options to specify input files:

-f [<.xtc/.trr/...>] (traj.xtc)

Trajectory: xtc trr cpt gro g96 pdb tng

-s [<.tpr/.gro/...>] (topol.tpr)

Structure+mass(db): tpr gro g96 pdb brk ent

-n [<.ndx>] (index.ndx) (Optional)

Index file

-d [<.dat>] (sfactor.dat) (Optional)

Generic data file

Options to specify output files:

-sq [<.xvg>] (sq.xvg)

xvgr/xmgr file

Other options:

-b <time> (0)

First frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-e <time> (0)

Last frame (ps) to read from trajectory

-dt <time> (0)

Only use frame when t MOD dt = first time (ps)

-xvg <enum> (xmgrace)

xvg plot formatting: xmgrace, xmgr, none

-ng <int> (1)

Number of groups to compute SAXS

-startq <real> (0)

Starting q (1/nm)

-endq <real> (60)

Ending q (1/nm)

-energy <real> (12)

Energy of the incoming X-ray (keV)
