MOSGRAF-2009 is a suite of applications designed to process Mössbauer data. It is based on the applications of the MOSGRAF suite available here as old_mosgraf.zip file. The MOSGRAF suite is no longer developed, albeit new programs of the fitting family have been added in the form compatible with the Microsoft Windows (©) systems. Documentation has not been upgraded, in general. The old_mosgraf.zip file unpacks to the image of the previously delivered CD-ROM except drivers for the spectrometer MsAa-3. There is no intention to develop further MOSGRAF as it is basically replaced by MOSGRAF-2009. MOSGRAF is available in the form AS IT IS. MOSGRAF-2009 graphical interface is based on the system .NET Framework 3.5 (©) developed by Microsoft. MOSGRAF-2009 is compatible with all Microsoft Windows (©) systems (either 32 or 64 bit) since Microsoft Windows-98 (©) inclusive.
MOSGRAF-2009 has been developed by K. Ruebenbauer and Ł. Duraj, while the backbone of MOSGRAF-2009, i.e., MOSGRAF had numerous contributors as described below.
T. Birchall, K. Ruebenbauer and G. Dénès developed original version of the basic fitting program GMFP. Fitting subroutines have been supplied by H.D. Grundy and developed by A.J. Stone. Expansion of the hyperfine-field distribution into central moments was introduced according to the work of G. Czjzek and W. Berger. A transmission integral procedure is based upon method devised by E. Cranshaw and later refined by G.K. Shenoy. The later inclusion of SRSA corrections is based upon work of J.G. Mullen. Several integration algorithms come from the McMaster Computing Center. Some algorithms used to generate pseudo-random numbers are provided by CYFRONET-Kraków. Quantum mechanical complex operators are processed by EISPACK (B.T. Smith, J.M. Boyle, B.S. Garbow, Y. Ikebe, V.C. Klema and C.B. Møler). Some CERN-library matrix-processing subroutines are implemented as well. These subroutines stem from the work of G.A. Erskine. Some basic concepts of the general layout for GMFP have been developed independently by E. Görlich and K. Tomala. Programs used for the velocity calibration by means of standard spectra were developed due to work of the following people B. Miczko, K. Ruebenbauer and B. Sepioł. Links to the operational systems have been based upon work of J. Rafa. T. Terlecki designed first graphical interface based on the HALO Professional suite provided by Media Cybernetics Inc. An independent development of the MsAa-1 system (and later systems like MsAa-2, MsAa-3 and finally MsAa-4) is due to the work performed by the following people R. Górnicki (owner of the RENON Company), M. Kwater, M. Pochroń, K. Ruebenbauer, T. Terlecki and U.D. Wdowik. Implementation of some applications under Linux (in particular in the remote batch processing mode) was possible thanks to the work of T. Kędzierski (Tedd). You can find some tools in the directory ...\mosgraf\tools collected as a freeware from the Internet network. See, for original contributors there. Many other people contributed to MOSGRAF/MOSGRAF-2009 in various ways as well. You have to note that all files having names beginning as ahd... are either original or modified graphical drivers developed by Media Cybernetics Inc. R. Batchelor contributed to the development of the final results plotting software, while M. Kwater contributed to the MOSGRAF interfacing with Microsoft Windows (©). Some procedures of MOSGRAF could be traced back as far as mid sixties of XX century, i.e., to the procedures developed at Argonne National Laboratory.
MOSGRAF-2009 is being constantly developed. The latest basic additions were released in the winter of 2012. Many important upgrades have been made since then. Hence, check from time to time for upgrades and additions.
