A graphically-based software has been developed for acquiring, processing, displaying and manipulating scattering intensity data. The program generates the Radial Distribution Function from the scattering intensity data, thereby supporting the interpretation of the intensity data to visualize crystal lattice structures. It allows the user to handle a wide variety of data sets and provides for direct user interaction through an easy-to-use graphical interface. The software can handle complex mathematical procedures such as Fast Fourier Transforms, digital filtering, apodization and peak searching. Although developed specifically for the interpretation of diffraction pattern data, the software is generic and can be used for the analysis and interpretation of other kinds of scientific data.Dept. of Computer Science.
