My question should have already be asked, I am sorry for that but I
failed in searching on the COD web site...
COD can now be easily used like ICDD PDF database inside the last
version of the search-match tools of each provider (like PANalytical,
Rigaku or Bruker).
This way is probably the easiest one to use COD daily, especially for
our PhD students.
Unfortunately, it is important to recognize that the reactivity of each
of them is not their strong point when it is time to "update" the COD.
We need to wait for their goodwill to have an updated version of the
Get an update version of the COD is possible, you clearly explain how to
do. But each manufacturer add its "special touch" ie: make (I suppose)
its own compilation in order that the COD could be readable via
HighScore, DIFFRAC.EVA, PDXL...
I suppose this procedure is the same that when you have to update ICDD
database: you have to use the provider search-match software to
"compile" your new DVD with ICDD PDF4+ Database (kind of "raw" data with
their own ICDD format) into the right format to be usable inside your
My question is therefore: would it be possible to compile ourselves the
database COD to finally have a base "up to date" without being dependent
on the choices of the manufacturer ? My question involve that the COD
"raw" format should be the same that the ICDD "raw" one to be readable
by the soft compiler.
Thank you very much for all your kind attention.
Best regards (and so sorry for the bad English...)
