Description: For modeling of local structure and nanostructure in materials from atomic pair distribution functions (PDFs). This is a refinement program that takes an initial structure, in the form of a crystal structure, for example from a cif file, and refines structural parameters by fitting to PDF data from x-ray or neutron diffraction experiments. It has an easy to use graphical user interface.
