Landyne software suite (version 5) includes fifteen standalone computer programs for materials characterization and crystallography by transmission electron microscopy [1]. A launcher interface is provided for users to access all components conveniently. The purpose of this software suite is twofold: i) as research tools to analyze experimental results, ii) as teaching tools to explore the varieties of electron diffraction methods and crystallographic image processing principles.

The Landyne suite previously included: PTable, an interactive periodic table of elements; SVAT, a structural visual and analytical tool; SAED and PCED, simulation and analysis of electron diffraction (spot and ring) patterns; QSAED and QPCED, the processing and quantification of electron diffraction (spot and ring) patterns; HOLZ, simulation and analysis of higher-order Laue zone patterns; TEMUC, determination of crystal unit-cell using experimental electron diffraction results with a double-tilt holder in TEM; SPICA, a stereographic projection for interactive crystallographic analysis.
