the unit of dislocation length in DXA analysis
« on: March 22, 2019, 02:32:50 PM »
Dear Ovito users,

I am not clear about the unit of dislocation length in DXA analysis. Is it in angstroms?

Thank you very much.

June :)

Hi June,

Ovito, including the DXA function, does not use any particular units of length. It operates with those units in which the data are given that you loaded into the program. So, if atomic coordinates are given in Angstroms, then the DXA will yield dislocation line lengths in Angstroms as well.
