Crystal Impact outlook to 2020
December 17, 2019
The end of the year 2019 is approaching rapidly, so we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers for their continued engagement and interest in our software!
Here is a brief outlook what you can expect from Crystal Impact in the next year 2020:
Diamond 5 will be released, providing a new exploration view for a more intuitive research from atomic environments up to molecule clusters. In this context, we will also switch over to the update permission time model that we are already using with our Match! software. The update to Diamond 5 will be free-of-charge for all customers who own a license for Diamond 4.
For Match!, we currently plan to add the Toraya-method for quantitative analysis as well as a subset manager in the next version 3.10 (to be released in spring-summer 2020). Further improvements are Le Bail pattern decomposition (in combination with FullProf) which will become available most probably in version 3.11 in (maybe late) summer or autumn 2020. Finally, we are currently working on two more tutorial videos: One demonstrating different approaches for qualitative analysis with Match!, showing some tricks and alternative routes. In the second video we will show you how you can apply 'option set files' in your daily routine work.
Endeavour will also benefit from the availability of the Le Bail pattern decomposition method in Match!, in the sense that this will allow you to solve crystal structures from single crystal like data I(hkl).
The next annual release 2020/21 of Pearson's Crystal Data will become available in late summer or (most probably) autumn 2020,
providing thousands of new entries.
Our office will be closed from December 20 until January 2.
In urgent cases, please contact us by e-mail or fax.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Klaus Brandenburg and Holger Putz
