About XPowder Software
This software has been developed for the analysis of natural minerals, artificial compounds, biological crystals and other solid materials, using techniques of Powder X-Ray Diffraction (PXRD). Main applications are the identification, quantification and characterization of the crystalline components of solid samples.
Current XPowderX software (ver 2017) can coexist with the predecessors XPowder and XPowder12 and all of them can share the same computer, databases and sample files.
XPowder is intended for professionals, researchers and teachers of the following activities:
- Works of Art (Painting and Sculpture)
- Drilling and Oil Industry
- Mineralogy and Crystallography
- Chemical Industry
- Industrial Crystallization
- Corrosion and Alteration Products
- Meteorites and Space
- Cultural Heritage
- Novel Materials
