A new version of this company’s HighScore (Plus) is now available. A number of major changes have reportedly been introduced to the software that can provide users with several new functions. HighScore covers qualitative and quantitative XRD phase determinations, crystallographic analysis, profile and phase fits up to charge flipping structure analysis, and statistical methods to evaluate large numbers of scans. All functionality is in one consistent graphical user interface, and is supported with online help and tutorials. The new software can read virtually all powder diffraction data, including formats from all major diffractometer brands and beamline formats.

New functions offered include: partial least squares (PLS) regression to predict data from observed scan variations (data mining), calculation of element or oxide concentrations from phase quantities, and the use of spherical harmonics to describe complex preferred orientations.
