RMCProfile is a free software package (developed as a collaborative effort between scientists at several institutions including NIST), that can fit simultaneously different types of diffraction and spectroscopy data using a Reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) algorithm to determine both local and average atomic arrangements in a broad range of materials.  The NIST team focuses on the development of multi-technique aspects of this analysis and on the optimization of the software’s computing speed to enable handling of larger atomic configurations.
