FIDDLE. Simultaneous Indexing and Structure Solution from Powder Diffraction Data using a Genetic Algorithm and Correlation Functions



A method for the determination of crystal structures from powder diffraction data is presented that circumvents the difficulties associated with separate indexing. For the simultaneous optimization of the parameters that describe a crystal structure a genetic algorithm is used together with a pattern matching technique based on auto and cross correlation functions.
