I have moved this discussion from Identity Help to Analytical Techniques because I have had several samples analyzed. What would be the best method of displaying the results? A PDF file with graph and text explanation, attach a file of the counts and then include the position information with compound name following or another method.
The results came back in a Word file, so I'm not sure which means of display should be used. I have attached one of the graphs to provide an example.
My background is geophysics, so the analysis is a bit sketchy for me.
Your attachment is an X-ray powder diffraction pattern. To distinguish ferroan dolomite from ankerite will likely require an analysis of the iron content.
Your pattern is OK to display as it is (assuming you have a larger original file). A separate description of the minerals present in the analysis would be appropriate. I could not enlarge your file enough to see anything listed but ferroan dolomite; however.
