John Evans's Homepage - Topas Academic - Alan Coelho - jEdit

  • Topas is a powerful suite of software written by Alan Coelho for the analysis of powder diffraction data. Bruker market the original version of topas which comes with a full graphical user interface. An academic-only version is available from Alan Coelho for around 500 Euros.
    The academic version is run by editing a text based input file which allows you access to all the features of topas. In Durham we've been using "jedit" which is a freely downloadable editor to work with topas input files. jedit has a powerful macro language that lets you customise it to work with input files. The files can be colour-coded to make them easy to view. You can also run programmes from within jedit which allows you to control topas and its ancillary programmes from within the editor. jedit macros considerably speed up the writing/editing of topas input files. If you want to use our jedit menus then final responsibility for the suitability of the resulting .inp files lies with you.

  • SARAh- contains the user friendly magnetic structure analysis programs SARAh-Representational Analysis and SARAh-Refine. SARAh uses representational analysis to calculate 'symmetry allowed magnetic structures' . The front-end SARAh-Refine facilitates analysis of magnetic diffraction data in terms of these results with GSAS and FullProf. When used with GSAS, SARAh allows reverse Monte Carlo/ Simulated Annealing refinement of the moment orientations. When used with FullProf, automatic creation and editing of the magnetic phase can be controlled by the user.
