Indexing powder patterns using Fox

Finding peaks


Indexing (automatic)


Manual indexing


  • If quick indexing failed, you can change the search parameters. Normally you should only change the volume and cell ranges, and optionally the number of spurious peaks. Then check the system you want to search and click the Find Cell! button. You can also try to search for a triclinic cell.

    To choose the correct volume range, you should use the predicted volume ranges listed in the log window (bottom left) calculated from the number of peaks observed and their d-values. Note that the volumes are also listed for centered cells.

    Right now the differential evolution evolution does not work, so there is no use trying it.
