TL;DR: SUPERFLIP is a computer program that can solve crystal structures from diffraction data using the recently developed charge-flipping algorithm and has been successfully compiled and tested on a variety of operating systems.
Abstract: SUPERFLIP is a computer program that can solve crystal structures from diffraction data using the recently developed charge-flipping algorithm. It can solve periodic structures, incommensurately modulated structures and quasicrystals from X-ray and neutron diffraction data. Structure solution from powder diffraction data is supported by combining the charge-flipping algorithm with a histogram-matching procedure. SUPERFLIP is written in Fortran90 and is distributed as a source code and as precompiled binaries. It has been successfully compiled and tested on a variety of operating systems.
