Match!
Phase Identification from Powder Diffraction

Match! is an easy-to-use software for phase identification from powder diffraction data. It compares the diffraction pattern of your sample to a database containing reference patterns in order to identify the phases which are present. Additional knowledge about the sample like known phases, elements or density can be applied easily.
In addition to this qualitative analysis, a quantitative analysis (using Rietveld refinement) can be performed as well. You can easily setup and run Rietveld refinements from within Match!, with the actual calculations being performed automatically, using the well-known program FullProf (by J. Rodriguez-Carvajal) in the background. Match! provides a gentle introduction into Rietveld refinement, from fully automatic operation to the "Expert" mode. The software runs natively on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

As reference database, you can apply the included free-of-charge COD database and/or ICSD/Retrieve (if you have a valid licence), use any ICDD PDF product, and/or create a user database based on your own diffraction patterns. The user database patterns can be edited manually, imported from peak files, calculated from crystal structure data (e.g. CIF files), or imported from your colleague's user database.
A list of Match!'s most prominent features can be found here.
