Software for XRD

  • Q. Johnson (a1)


PC software for XRD is strongly influenced by the cost of the hardware. Contrasted to mainframe and mini platforms, PC's are essentially free, or at least much less expensive than maintenance contracts for the hardware we've used in the past. But when we get our own computer, we discover that much more time goes into tasks others did before such as system maintenance. PC software needs to be simple to use yet very powerful, so we can recover some of that time. Changes have been made. Much more remains to be done and that change is coming fast.
