In this work we use an Asynchronous Differential Evolution (ADE) method to estimate parameters of the Separated Form Factor (SFF) model which is used to investigate a structure of drug delivery Phospholipid Transport Nano System (PTNS) unilamellar vesicles by experimental small angle synchrotron X-ray scattering spectra (SAXS). We compare the efficiency of different optimizing procedures (OP) for the search for the SFF-model parameters. It is shown that the probability to find the global solution of this problem by ADE-methods is significantly higher than that by either Nelder-Mead method or a Quasi-Newton method with Davidon-Fletcher-Powell formula. The parallel realization of ADE accelerates the calculations significantly. The speed-up obtained by the parallel realization of ADE and results of the model are presented.
