I am looking for a script (preferably in Python) that will suggest (hkl) indices based on distances in an electron diffraction pattern. The crystal structure is known,i.e. I have the CIF file and know the space group. This has already been done in Fortran, just wanted to know if it was out there in Python! I was able to find a FORTRAN version.

  • $\begingroup$ +1 But I am curious about why you are looking for a python version if the fortran version works? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @NikeDattani Thanks for checking back. Pointers to python libraries are helpful. Pointers to functions within the library would be even more helpful, with easy understanding of input/output. I believe the forum conversations will eventually become that specific and easy to search for new users of these libraries :) $\endgroup$
