Study crystal diffraction, reciprocal lattices, etc.


SingleCrystal is an elegant, easy-to-use program for visualizing and understanding diffraction patterns from single crystals.

SingleCrystal lets you simulate simulation electron diffraction patterns and reciprocal lattice sections - which can be compared directly with observed data. The program also lets you display stereographic projections of planes, traces, zones and zone axes. You can rotate crystals with the mouse, or tilt controls, and observe how the diffraction pattern changes. Screen tools allow easy measurement and indexing of reflexions, as well as the display of phase information for scattered beams.

SingleCrystal is designed to work with CrystalMaker, allowing users to visualize crystal structures then with a single menu command, display the diffraction pattern in SingleCrystal. The program can also be used as a stand-alone application, reading from CrystalMaker "crystal" files.

What's new in SingleCrystal

Version 3.0.1:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.10 or later.

  • Improved Pixel Graphics Output. Exporting high-resolution pixel graphics (e.g., PNG or TIFF) is now much faster and provides a faithful reproduction of the screen image. (Earlier versions used a vector graphics engine to prepare the output, which degraded the overall quality.)
  • Updated User's Guide. The User's Guide has been substantially revised in this release, incorporating new screen shots and extra tips on using the program efficiently.
  • Miscellaneous. This version includes minor changes to the way fonts are handled, plus occasional bug fixes:
    • Added font substitution to the stereogram's labels display, in case the default font (Verdana) is not available.
    • The Picture > Choose Picture command is now correctly enabled.
    • Fixed some broken help links.
