1. INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL DESCRIPTION

next, previous Section / Table of Contents / Index The program system BALSAC (Build and Analyze Lattices, Surfaces, And Clusters, (C) Copyright K. Hermann 1991-2005) allows the construction, visualization, and interactive analysis of general crystal lattices including single crystal surfaces (LATTICE sessions) and of finite clusters and molecules (CLUSTER sessions). Structural information can be stored on ASCII-type data files using a variety of different formats including gray scale and color PostScript to obtain high quality print output using PostScript printers and typesetting devices. BALSAC versions exist for Unix-based workstations and mainframes using X.11 Windows for graphics output (DECstation 5000, IBM RS/6000, HP 9000, Silicon Graphics, Convex, Stardent, SUN) and for DOS-based personal computers (IBM PC XT/AT, IBM PS/2 or true compatible systems) using VGA monochrome or color graphics.
