■ Conograph GUI ver.

[English / Japanese]

This web page is a summary on the disribution of the Conograph software.
Conograph can execute peak search, powder indexing and refinement of unit-cell parameters using powder diffraction patterns.

The newest version for Windows/Mac OS (released in October 2015) is available from the web page of Z-Code(or old website).
If you cannot access the web page, please contact me by using the e-mail address in the Conograph manuals.
The CUI of the previous version can be downloaded from here.

News

2016-11-16
Small revisions for output cells.
2016-3-22
A bug recently found in codes for indexing computation was fixed. This bug does not seem to generate much difference in results.
2015-10-13
The newest version of Conograph was released.
2015-7-17
Conograph for Windows had a bug which frequently displays an error message window if the system language uses commas as a decimal point. This was fixed in the current version.
2014-11-9
A bug caused by combination of Visual Studio C++ and a parallel computing by OpenMP was fixed. This bug was bringing the software to a halt at the time of initialization of some static const parameter.
The "Minimum Mwu" in "Advanced Indexing Parameters" frame was set to a wrong value when the software was started. This error that increased compuation time for Bravais lattice determination was fixed.
The manual document was updated.
2014-8-25
Several bugs including the following in Bravais lattice determination were fixed. The function to check uniqueness of indexing solutions was added in the released newest version.
2013-5-7
An event problem caused by terminating the program after peaksearching was fixed.
