… provides a powerful algorithm to determine and correct systematic distortions in low-energy electron diffraction images. Easy to operate via its graphical user interface, LEEDCal will automatically generate a correction matrix upon analyzing a calibration sample exhibiting a well-known surface structure. This calculated matrix can be saved and applied later on, by using LEEDCal_corr, to rectify all future diffraction patterns recorded with the same LEED device. This works also in batch mode! The results allow accurate interpretation of lattice constants/epitaxial relations when used in combination with the LEEDLab.


… is a software package to simulate (freeware) and to analyze quantitatively (fee-based, available from Fritz & Sojka GbR) low-energy electron diffraction patterns. It has been developed to enable geometric simulations of complex surface structures, allowing objective determination of the lattice parameters and epitaxial relations. For carefully calibrated devices (using LEEDCal and LEEDCal_corr) an unsurpassed accuracy of typically 1% can be attained.
