RUMP: RBS Analysis and Plotting

o Welcome to RUMP - the RBS plotting, analysis and simulation package. If this is your first visit, stop by the welcome page for a quick introduction to the package, some of its history, distribution notes, and a few real book references.

Command References
General concepts and definitions (buffers, etc.)
Relationship of RUMP, SIM and PERT
Specifying elements, thicknesses
RUMP Basic file and spectra reading and manipulation
Plotting, overlaying and RBS specific annotation
Simple (usually RBS only) analysis commands
SIM Sample definition and simulation setup commands.
Commands to define layers and thickness of a model sample
Reading and saving sample description files.
PERT Semi-automatic refinement of a simulation.
Defines error/normalization windows
Specify parameters to modify in search
Configuration and loading/modification of optional features
Examine stopping powers and load exception tables
Load and examine resonance cross-section files.

As you become more familiar with RUMP, it may eventually be necessary to delve into some of the internals to configure the program for your particular analysis needs. The following appendices describe some of the specific data files that can be created to interact with RUMP.

*.RBS Specification of the binary data file format for RBS spectra. This extensible key-based file format speeds storage and retrieval of spectra and their associated parameters.
*.ADTResonance and non-Rutherford scattering cross-sections handling. Arbitrary scattering cross-sections can be handled by providing a data file containing a list of energies and corresponding cross-sections.
*.STPStopping powers and stopping exception files. Although RUMP will generate stopping power tables on the fly, exception files provide a way to scale or modify the Ziegler based stopping powers.
