Given an mCIF file (we can download one from the Bilbao MAGNDATA database), simulate the magnetic pair distribution function (mPDF) pattern.

*Current frontend interface for the mPDF calculation is a wrapper around the backend mPDF calculation engine developed by Prof. Benjamin Frandsen, et al.

*Please cite: Frandsen et al., diffpy.mpdf: open-source software for magnetic pair distribution function analysis, J. Appl. Cryst. (2022) 55, 1377-1382.

*For mPDF, the signal presentation will depend on whether the magnetic form factor is divided out or not, corresponding to the normalized and unnormalized version of the signal as will be presented in the result page.

*Detailed discussion about the normalized and unnormalized version of the mPDF signal can be found in the following papers, B. Frandsen, et al. Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 3-11, B. A. Frandsen, et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 116, 197204
