MDI Products

MDI creates PC products for powder diffraction data analysis and acquisition. If you plan to upgrade your diffractometer to more modern automation, check our Databox and DataScan offerings. For pattern analysis, phase identification, full physics modeling, Jade software is the best choice. And for those using films and image detectors, MDI's FilmScan, now in a far more powerful version, provides exceptional digital processing. jPowd now also includes Laue simulations.
