Instant Usage of Additional Information

Previous: Display and compare multiple diffraction patterns...
Next: Saving of selection criteria for restraints and additional entries...

With Match!, it is extremely easy to directly use any kind of additional information about the sample (like the elements that can or must be present), without the need to open a separate dialog like in the previous version. All corresponding selections you make on the "Restraints" or "Additional entries" tabs on the upper right-hand side are instantly reflected in the candidate list at the bottom of the screen (and of course also apply to the entries that are investigated during the Search-Match calculation).

For example, suppose that you know that the element oxygen (O) must be present in all matching phases. In order to use this information, simply click on the corresponding button in the periodic table on the upper right-hand side; Match! will instantly apply this additional information to the current answer set (table candidate list at the bottom):

As you see, Match! uses the same perpetual restrainting mechanism that you may already know from Pearson's Crystal Data: While entering your selection criteria, any modification will instantly be reflected e.g. in the table of resulting entries and the entry count.

As an example, we assume that you would like to enter the additional information that the element Si must be present. In order to do so, simply press on the element "Si" in the periodic table on the upper right hand side. The candidate list at the bottom is instantly modified: All entries for CaCO3 (Calcite) that were present before are now gone, and the number of entries matching your selection criteria (displayed to the right of "Restraints" on the tab control) has been significantly reduced (from 99863 to 7913):

In a similar manner, it is also possible to add specific entries to the table of candidate entries (candidate list): Simply click on the tab "Additional entries"; this will bring up a totally equivalent set of tabsheets like the "Restraints" set. You can now define precisely which entries you would like to add to the candidate list even though they do not match the "Restraints" criteria.
