Your plots in fact look much better than mine. Conversion between k, Q,
v, E and lambda seems to be the problem.
Which formula do you use for calculating Q? For Q=8.88577 I calculate an
energy of 81.0425meV at 45°? I calculate it with
Q=4*PI*sin(theta)/lambda
with E(meV)=81.80425/lamda(AA)**2.
Do I have the wrong formula? 81.80425 is correct.
Georg
