Keywords: Crystallography, Laue scattering, Diffractometer Orientation, 4-circle diffractometer, Energy dispersive Apparatus.
Classification: 8.

Nature of problem:
Orientation of a 4-circle diffractometer with a single crystal sample, fixed detector and standard Eulerian arcs.

Solution method:
Using identifiable Laue reflections that pass close to the counter (but not necessarily into its centre), the orientation equations are solved directly or by least-squares fitting (as appropriate).

There is no restriction on the symmetry of the sample. The maximum number of allowed data points is controlled by a PARAMETER statement and set at 20 in the distributed version.

Running time:
Less than 1 second.
