Free XRD Software for Academics

Spring 2021: Finding new ways of working

Attention all research team leaders! Would you like some extra free software licenses for our XRD packages HighScore Plus and AMASS, so that your students and research team can work with these at home?

Since many of us are now working from home and access to the lab can be restricted, we’d like to help your team to progress your XRD projects by providing some software licenses for 1 year of free use of our XRD packages HighScore Plus or AMASS. 

Due to the limited nature of this offer,  we cannot accept requests directly from students and we kindly request only that fully employed team leaders apply on behalf of their students.

Simply apply here using your institutional email address.

If you have more questions, don’t be afraid to Contact Us!

HighScore Plus Software

For polycrystalline materials, whether you are interested in improved process control, or doing research and development, understanding your materials starts very often with understanding the powder diffraction pattern.

After identification of all phases present in your sample with Malvern Panalytical’s HighScore with the Plus Option this all-in-one software suite continues to support you with your analysis. 

Whether your focus is on quantification with or without the Rietveld method, profile fitting, or pattern treatment; HighScore Plus is the solution and helps you perform your daily analyses.

AMASS Software

Advanced Material Analysis and Simulation Software (AMASS) provides comprehensive functionality for displaying, analyzing, simulating, and fitting X-ray scattering data from nano-layered structures. Reflectometry methods provide you with information about film thicknesses, densities together with surface and interface roughness. High resolution methods such as rocking curves, 2-axes scans, reciprocal space maps allow you to obtain strain and composition measurements from epitaxial layer structures. 

These and similar thin films are commonly researched for example in electronics and photovoltaics applications in a variety of devices ranging from LEDs and displays to solar cells and power electronics for mobile phones and telecommunications.
