WCEN is a fiber diffraction pattern processing program. The main features of the program include displaying fiber diffraction images, determining diffraction parameters, correcting systematic effects and mapping diffraction data into reciprocal space. WCEN provides highly customizable colormaps great for visualizing images with dynamic ranges of intensity. Its data plotting, image filtering and manipulation routines are also useful for general scientific image processing.
||RADFN is an angular deconvolution program designed for measuring intensity data from partially oriented specimens to the highest possible resolution. With X-ray diffraction data on a polar grid (produced by WCEN), RADFN performs background subtraction, disorientation deconvolution, and overlapping correction, to extract the intensity for each "reflection" on the grid for use in structure refinement with FX-PLOR.
||DISORDER is a program for simulation of diffraction from fibril assemblies and optimization of fibril models with respect to experimental diffraction data. Originally developed by Dr. Alexander Borovinskiy at UCSF, with contributions from FiberNet, DISORDER is now maintained and continuingly developed at FiberNet. A key feature of the program is its ability to simulate diffraction patterns from fibrils with orientation disorder.
||Fiberd provides a collection of optimized Fourier-Bessel transform, syntheses and related routines essential for general fiber diffraction computing. In particular, Fiberd can be used to compute structure factors, electron density and useful intermediates such as G and g. Angular convolution is built in to allow quick diffraction simulations of partially oriented systems.
||FX-PLOR is a fiber diffraction extension to X-PLOR, Axel Brunger's molecular dynamics program for atomic model refinement. It is now part of XPLOR-NIH (version 2.20 and later). Past and current FX-PLOR users are advised to switch to XPLOR-NIH. FX-PLOR will not be actively maintained and all future update, enhancement, and documentation will go into XPLOR-NIH only.
||CCP13 (Collaborative Computational Project 13) ceased to function in 2006 but the software they developed is made available through the Software for Small Angle Scattering project funded by Diamond Light Source and the STFC ISIS Neutron Source. Most of the CCP13 software programs was integrated into a single program (FibreFix) running on Windows systems and can be used to process fibre diffraction patterns and extract intensity data.
||FIT2D is a 1- and 2-D data analysis program written by Andy Hammersley of the European Synchrotron Research Facility. It might be useful in the analysis of both powder and fiber diffraction data.
