Graphical Analysis 1070

The analysis menu offers various options to analyze geometric quantities of a particle shown in the graphics window using the mouse pointer for the analysis. Examples are measuring distances, angles, atom environments, displaying basis vectors, performing symmetry analyses, and more.

L-clicking the “Analysis” entry of the main menu bar at the top of the graphics window opens a list of entries offering all options available for graphical analysis. The options are grouped according to geometric or other similarities and details of the different options are explained in the following subsections.

Distances / vectors / averages                Angles                                       Neighbors

Areas/volumes                                        Lattice/basis vectors                   Decompose vectors

Elementary cells                                     Miller indices                              Symmetry
