JADE® Pattern Digitizer Video Tutorials


The JADE Pattern Digitizer is a free online service that allows you to extract digital powder patterns from XRD plot images. The digitized pattern can be downloaded for use in JADE or other XRD software. Use the Mouse and MouseWheel to adjust the plot boundary box markers and enter the correct scan information before digitizing. Choose the “Faded Image” overlay option to best compare the digitized trace with the original image. As this Applet does not provide any image editing functionality, the images must be suitable for the applied “rainfall”-tracing.
Use these video tutorials to get the most out of the JADE Pattern Digitizer.
Note: there is no audio on these tutorials. Best viewed full screen.
Tips:
  • If possible use GIF images (max 256 colors; better for color screening)
  • The number of horizontal pixels determines the 2-Theta step size
  • In difficult cases use an image editor to clean up the image before uploading
    (remove vertical axes/ticks, text labels etc.)
  • JADE Pro users can also use the bundled “XRD Digitizer” toolkit

JADE is everything you need for XRD pattern processing.
