Data Collector

Data Collector is your control board for all measurements on powders, thin films, nanomaterials and solid objects.


Visualize your 2D diffraction data and convert it to various 1D scans with XRD2DScan.

Software for powder diffraction process control applications

Control your CubiX³ or X’Pert³ Powder for powder diffraction measurements and extract calibration-line based quantitative results.

Industry is designed for industrial environments with push-button interface and extensive LIMS and automation capabilities. With the optional Walk-up Interface, multi-user environments are well supported. Quantify is a simplified version with 10 preprogrammed quantitative analysis modules.


Our Industry software is designed for high-volume routine X-ray diffraction analysis in an industrial environment.


Quantify is a stand-alone software for basic data acquisition and calibration-line based quantitative phase analysis

Powder diffraction software modules

Our HighScore family of powder diffraction software is designed to extract all phase information from your loose and pressed powders and other polycrystalline samples.

Learn more about the world’s most advanced search-match software HighScore, with its extensive support of various search-match databases like CanDI-X. The HighScore Plus option offers additional routines for crystallography, unlimited clustering and Rietveld analysis on top of all HighScore functionality. RoboRiet offers ‘execution-only’ Rietveld quantification and profile fits for industrial environments.


HighScore, our powder diffraction software, can also be used for phase identification and depth profiling of phases in polycrystalline coatings.

Plus option for HighScore 

On top of HighScore, our Plus option adds crystallographic, unlimited clustering, Rietveld /structure fits and more under the same user interface.

Search-match reference databases

We support the widest variety of search-match databases for the ultimate performance in phase identification.


RoboRiet is a special ‘execution-only’ implementation of the Rietveld method and profile fits for industrial environments.

XRD analysis of thin films

With our thin film software modules, you can obtain detailed information on the thickness, composition, preferred orientation, epitaxial quality and residual stress present in layers.

These essential thin layer parameters are easily and quickly quantified with the new, all-in-one, AMASS (Advanced Material Analysis and Simulation Software) suite. 

For polycrystalline layers and layer stacks, you can determine the phase composition, also as a function of depth, with our HighScore software, and determine the residual stresses with our Stress Plus software.


Our AMASS software suite offers all the functionalities you need to characterize your layered structures enabling fast and easy determination of key thin-film parameters.

Stress Plus

With our Stress Plus module on top of our Stress software package, residual stresses in polycrystalline films can be determined.

Size and shape analysis of nanomaterials

EasySAXS data analysis software for nanoparticle and nanostructure analysis. It provides information on nanoscale structures and dimensions, nanoparticle shapes and surface areas.The software also supports the analysis of ultra small-angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) data.

Advanced SAXS data analysis software

EasySAXS is an advanced, user-friendly software package for the analysis of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data.

Analysis of solid objects

Our Texture and Stress software modules reveal the preferred orientation and residual stresses present in your machined components like rolled and extruded metals.

Stress is praised by experts worldwide for its extensive yet intuitive functionality. The optional module Stress Plus adds analysis of residual stress in thin films to the Stress package.
Texture offers extensive functionality for analyzing pole figures, orientation distribution functions (ODFs) and inverse pole figures.


Our intuitive Stress package calculates residual stresses in your samples using the sin2Ψ method.

Stress Plus

With the Stress Plus option, you extend the functionality of your Stress software to the analysis of polycrystalline and thin films.


Texture is our software package enabling you to analyze, calculate and visualize preferred crystallite orientations.
