Abstract:

Six new computer programs have been written to process the x-ray diffraction data obtained at this laboratory. Of these, four programs are for use with the Control Data Corporation 3600 computer, and two are for use with the IBM 7094 at the M.I.T. Computation Center. The CDC 3600 programs are BIAXSCAN, for processing raw pole figure data from our automatic x-ray diffractometer SHORTBX, an abbreviated version of BIAXSCAN suited for studies of uniaxial orientation RADLSCAN, for processing raw radial scan data and RESOLVER, for resolution of overlapping x-ray peaks. The two IBM 7094 programs are used for graphical plotting of the pole figure contour maps from data provided by BIAXSCAN one uses the Calcomp plotter, while the other utilizes the cathode-ray-tube output.
