Materials engineering: Powder Diffraction File

This guide presents selected reference and research resources for Materials Engineering

Software in the Library

The Powder Diffraction File software version 4+ is installed on computer HAL-LDB-8001 in the Hargrave-Andrew Library.

Resources for using PDF4+

"PDF4+ is an advanced database containing the data from both the PDF-2 and ICDD's (International Centre for Diffraction Data ) collaboration with MPDS (Materials Phases Data System). This database has comprehensive material coverage for inorganic materials and it contains numerous additional features such as digitized patterns, molecular graphics and atomic parameters. Features to enhance the ability to do quantitative analysis have been incorporated into PDF-4+."
