Welcome to the PDFgetX Home Page
PDFgetX is a program for obtaining an atomic
pair distribution function (PDF) from x-ray powder diffraction data.
The program is designed for ease of use. It is interactive with a
built in graphic capability for viewing the effect of corrections to the data.
Takes raw x-ray powder diffraction data as input.
Yields a total scattering structure function, S(Q) and the PDF, G(r).
PDFgetX is a suite of macros and functions written in the YORICK interpreted
language. YORICK is a powerful interpreted language, similar in scope
to IDL, and is ideal for analyzing large data-sets. YORICK
can be downloaded for free. In principle, PDFgetX will run on all platforms
which run YORICK. YORICK distributions exist for Windows 95 and NT,
macintosh and DEC alpha NT as well as Linux and unix. We have tested
PDFgetX on the following platforms:
DEC unix OSF/1
Redhat Linux 6.0
- PDFgetN PDF from neutron powder scattering.
- DISCUS (DIffuse SCattering and defect strUcture Simulation) Home Page.
- PDFFIT (PDF FITting Program) Home Page.
