The Area Diffraction Machine
The Area Diffraction Machine analyzes two dimensional powder diffraction data. It is free open source software.
What Does it Do?
It displays diffraction data interactively
Load in mar2300, mar3450, marCCD, tiff, and now edf diffraction data.
Change the intensity scale or color map.
Use the calibration tab.
The program can calibrate standard diffraction images with inputted Q values. This calibration can be done with only the Q values and an initial guess of the calibration values. Calibration does not require manually clicking on the screen to find diffraction peaks!
This program can apply both a greater then or less than threshold mask to the diffraction data. It can add polygon masks to different areas of the diffraction data.
Perform a Q-χ Cake the data
Perform an Intensity Integration
Perform a Q-I integration, a 2θ-I integration, and a χ-I integration.
Automate the program with Macros
Fully automate the program using a rich macro language.
Runs on Mac
There is a Discussion Group for the program here. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, feel free to post them to the group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any issues with the program, please submit them to the issue tracker.
