CRYSTAL IMPACT Homepage DIAMOND - Visual Crystal Structure Information System ENDEAVOUR - Structure Solution from Powder Diffraction MATCH! - Phase Identification from Powder Diffraction


What it is and does

Endeavour is designed for the solution of crystal structures from powder diffraction data. Its innovative concept implies a combined global optimization of the difference between the calculated and measured diffraction pattern and of the potential energy of the system. Endeavour closes the remaining gap in the process of structure solution from powder diffraction data. Since Endeavour is based upon the experienced Diamond visualization technology, the user can watch the crystal structure evolving from a completely random arrangement of atoms to the final model during the solution process.
