    Hi Brian,
    You may want to add the program X+ to your list of analysis software. X+ is documented in and can be downloaded for free. Another relevant paper is: DOI: 10.1021/la101433t
    The readme file is attached below.

    X+ v1.0 README

    Package, both available for download on the Microsoft website.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 is available for download at this URL:

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package is available for download at this URL:

    X+ can be found in the following link:

    Installing X+:

    See the Quick Users Guide for more information.

  2. Dear Uri,

    Thank you for your message. I don’t have a page listing analysis software, though. This page here is just listing the software projects I am or have been involved in. I also do not think I have the opportunity to test X+ as it seems to require Windows.

    from where I can install the software? is it Ideally for porous material?

    how I can install SAXS software?

  5. Which software in particular are you considering? Each installs in a separate way, not many of them are easy to use. The only one easy to install is the Windows executable of the McSAS software. This can be downloaded from here: (I recommend you download the latest version only).
