Computer Techniques for Faster X-Ray Diffraction Phase Identification

  • Raymond P. Goehner (a1) and Mary F. Garbauskas (a1)


This paper describes the procedures used to retrieve JCPDS powder diffraction data by certain characteristics. These characteristics may include chemistry, mineral name, highest intensity dspacing, largest dspacing, PDF number, etc. The storage scheme used for the powder data and the procedures used to enhance the retrieval speed are described.
