BEARTEX. is a comprehensive package of computer programs dedicated to quantitative texture analysis containing 30 programs and running in a Windows environment on a PC. It is available for distribution at a nominal cost and widely used (see BEARTEX).

Rietveld texture analysis: MAUD. In collaboration with L. Lutterotti (Trento) and S. Matthies (Dresden) a software system has been developed to analyze textures (including crystal structure, microstructure and internal stress) from diffraction spectra. This technique is particularly useful for TOF neutron diffraction spectra but also applicable to x-ray spectra and synchrotron diffraction images.

SEMTEX and MAPTEX are packages to drive an electron microscope, construct orientation maps, orientation and misorientation distributions. They are fully compatible with BEARTEX.
