MRS Spring Meeting 2018

Exhibition and Workshop in Phoenix

Materials Research Society, Spring Meeting

16 April 2018

We returned to the Materials Research Society's Spring National Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. This - the third such meeting in Phoenix - had a new format, with three days of afternoon exhibitions. We believe this was a great success, allowing attendees more chance to visit exhibitors, including during poster sessions.

We also held our first major-conference workshop, on the afternoon of Monday 2 April. The workshop was held in the undergraduate student lab at Arizona State University - which allowed the attendees to follow a series of interactive demonstrations using the supplied computer equipment. We think this might be an excellent model for future meetings, should sufficient people be interested.

SingleCrystal 3.1

Major Update Brings Easier Auto-Indexing, Miller-Bravais Indices

1 February 2018

Our first major update of the New Year brings SingleCrystal up to version 3.1. Key new features include the option of Miller-Bravais (four-index) notation for trigonal or hexagonal crystals, plus the ability to quickly add symmetry-related poles to the stereogram.

Auto-indexing an observed TEM diffraction pattern has been made much easier in this release: the picture scale can now be specified using reciprocal units (dimensions, resolution and/or pixel size). Picture dimensions can be freely adjusted by clicking-and-dragging with the mouse (hold down the shift and command (Mac) or control (Windows) keys, then click-and-drag up or down the screen).

Following popular demand, you can now browse through different fit results, using a new Fit Results submenu, or via keyboard shortcuts. Finally, you can rapidly change the view direction by double-clicking on a stereogram pole.

SingleCrystal 3.1 is a free update to registered SingleCrystal 3 users. Learn More: Mac Release Notes | Windows Release Notes | Download
