New Capabilities for 2020
To enhance the value of the PDF® software, ICDD has incorporated many new developments for the 2020 product release. Every year, we at ICDD listen to our customers to create a better product for our users. Below are just some of the many value-added developments designed to make the ICDD products more functional and powerful for 2020.
The composition graph allows the user to search the ICDD Powder Diffraction File™ (PDF) database and group binary and ternary PDF entries based on their composition values (atomic percent or weight percent). Each unique composition is displayed as a colored point on a triangular graph and represents one or more PDF entries. The position and color of the points are based on the ratio of the elements in the composition. Compositions with a higher ratio of element A will be closer to the left vertex and will have redder coloring. Compositions with a higher ratio of element B will be closer to the right vertex and will have greener coloring. For ternary systems, compositions with a higher ratio of element C will be closer to the top vertex and will have bluer coloring.
