-Topas is a powerful suite of software written by Alan Coelho for the analysis of powder diffraction data. Some highlights of our research enabled by   Topas are given here. Bruker (http://​www.bruker-axs.de/​) market the original version of topas which comes with a full graphical user interface. An   ​academic-only version is available from Alan Coelho ​for around 500 Euros. +Topas is a powerful suite of software written by Alan Coelho for the analysis of powder diffraction data.

-The academic version is run by editing a text based input file which allows you access to all the features of topas. In Durham we've been using "[[jedit]]"​ which is a freely downloadable editor to work with topas input files. jedit has a powerful macro language that lets you customise it to work with input files. The files can be colour-coded to make them easy to viewYou can also run programmes from within jedit which allows you to control topas and its ancillary programmes from within the editor. jedit macros considerably speed up the writing/editing of topas input files. If you want to use our jedit menus then final responsibility for the suitability of the resulting .inp files lies with you+
