I think you can find the numbers in the tables of crystallography (atomic scattering factors), however, these numbers are wavelength dependent. It would be good to put this kind of stuff in a data file. As a matter of fact I have been wanting to put all element properties into a single XML file, but this has to wait until we are past Gromacs 4.5.
thanks for the immediate reply. So is there anything I can help to get g_rdf more flexible ? Perhaps we can provide a further option in g_rdf that reads the corresponding data from a simple txt file ? Afterwards the changes in the code and the switch to xml should not be much work ?
