A specialized version of ReX, Rex.Cell aims to offer a simple yet flexible step-by-step procedure for powder diffraction indexing. From powder data loading and processing, through peak search and identification till to the actual cell indexing the program guides the user by means of a simple wizard interface, while at the same time allowing parameters fine-tuning and manual operation possibility.

You may download the ReX.Cell binaries from the download page (scroll down to the bottom); after that, have a look at the quick-start tutorial.
