MAUD is a Rietveld code to analyze diffraction spectra. It has been written and is maintained by Luca Lutterotti at the University of Trento. The Java code can be downloaded from his website that also contains a tutorial (MAUD). In Berkeley we are using it to analyze neutron diffraction data, especially collected with the TOF diffractometer HIPPO at LANSCE and synchrotron diffraction images. Emphasis is on texture. Below are procedures and examples to practice.
The instructions for neutron diffraction have been published in Powder Diffraction 25, 283-296 (2010). Be aware that some details have changed (Schmitt et al. J. Appl. Cryst. 2023).
