A SOFTWARE TOOL FOR POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION USING TWO-DIMENSIONAL X-RAY DIFFRACTION
XRD2DScan is a Windows software tool for displaying and analyzing two-dimensional (2D) X-ray diffraction patterns or frames collected using a diffractometer equipped with a 2D or area detector (Image plate, CCD, Multy-wire). Two-dimensional diffraction patterns contains a wealth of information regarding the mineralogical composition and microstructure of polycrystalline materials. It can be used for quick mineral phase identification and microstructure (preferential orientation, pole figures, grain size and stress) analyses.
