Example: 3472(52) 'Zachariasen coefficient r* = 0.347(5) E04'


   The extinction coefficient used to calculate the correction
   factor applied to the structure-factor data. The nature of the
   extinction coefficient is given in the definitions of
   _refine_ls_extinction_expression and

   For the 'Zachariasen' method it is the r* value; for the
   'Becker-Coppens type 1 isotropic' method it is the 'g' value,
   and for 'Becker-Coppens type 2 isotropic' corrections it is
   the 'rho' value. Note that the magnitude of these values is
   usually of the order of 10000.
