The PDF-4+ 2016 contains 271 449 entries with atomic coordinates that can be used to calculate neutron time-of-flight (TOF) powder diffraction patterns. These diffraction patterns can all be calculated on-the-fly. Three TOF results can be realized: the live calculation of on-the fly diffraction patterns, the population of static PDF® entries, and data for search/match tables for phase identification. In connection with search/match, we have extended the development of the I/I c formalism to include both constant wavelength (CW) and TOF neutron diffraction data. It is shown that the wavelength dependence of X-ray and CW neutron data must be factored into the behavior of I/I c, whereas this dependence is directly incorporated into TOF data.
