NanoPDF is a program to calculate diffraction patterns and Pair Distribution Functions of nanocrystals and analyze experimental PDF data.

Recent 64bit version The package consists of binary files and the source code of: NanoPDF64.exe and diffdatafit.exe. Some auxiliary files are included too.

Unpack to a directory of your choice and set-up the paths in Options->Settings.
Caution: temporary directory must be user-writable otherwice RasTop will fail silently!
The fitting application is named diffdatafit.exe and comes inside the zip.

Quick start guide Calculate diffraction pattern and G(r)

Fitting procedure example 1 Fitting entire G(r) at once

Fitting procedure example 2 Scanning experimental G(r)

Fitting procedure example 3 Calculating G(r) for core-shell model and analyzing it.

Manual version 20 Oct 2016

The program is under continous developement.
If you like it come back from time to time to check for new versions.
