Introducing Genie


Your wish has been granted! We are proud to introduce Genie, ICDD's newest way to submit powder patterns to the Powder Diffraction File™. With the Genie program, not only can you submit your high-quality powder patterns to the Powder Diffraction File™, but you can do so with ease. This quick, easy tool allows you to import a CIF to read in all crystallographic data for your powder diffraction pattern in one step. The program also accepts and imports most common file types for raw data files and processed data. If you want to hand type the information, you are able to do that as well. We created this program with you in mind!

As always, we appreciate receiving your feedback and submissions. Please email us at:

Have you read Powder Diffraction (PDJ) lately?

Powder Diffraction is a quarterly journal published by the ICDD through Cambridge University Press. PDJ is a journal of practical technique, publishing articles relating to the widest range of application— from materials analysis to epitaxial growth of thin films and to the latest advances in software. Although practice is emphasized, theory is not neglected, especially as its discussion relates to better understanding of technique.

Visit the PDJ page for information on subscribing.
