Match! Basics

Match! is a program for phase analysis using powder diffraction data. By comparing the diffraction pattern of an unknown sample to patterns of known compounds stored in a database, it is able (or at least helps) to identify the phases present in the unknown sample (qualitative phase analysis). In most circumstances Match! is also able to determine the amounts of these phases (quantitative analysis).
