Inel offers a large variety of acquisition programs, for standard as well as for custom hardware configurations. All programs run under Windows®. The list includes the programs for powder and high resolution diffractometers, data acquisition of stress (plane and triaxial), retained austenite and textures (Equal area scan, Hexagonal Scan).
The programs can control scintillating counters, proportional detectors, position sensitive detectors, up to 16 motions, high and Low-Temperature chambers, X-ray generator and other devices.

Match! Phase Identification from Powder Diffraction



Match! is an easy-to-use software for phase identification from powder diffraction data, which has become a daily task in material scientist’s work. Match! compares the powder diffraction pattern of your sample to a database containing reference patterns in order to identify the phases which are present. Single as well as multiple phases can be identified based on both peak data and raw (profile) data.
As reference database, you can apply the included free-of-charge COD database and/or ICSD/Retrieve (if you have a valid license), use any ICDD PDF product, and/or create a user database based on your own diffraction patterns. The user database patterns can be edited manually, imported from peak files, calculated from crystal structure data (e.g. CIF files), or imported from your colleague's user database.
