Category PD_DATA

Name:
'_pd_data_[pd]'

Definition:

   The PD_DATA category contains raw, processed and calculated
   data points in a diffraction data set. In many cases, it is
   convenient to tabulate calculated values against the
   raw and processed measurements, and so the various
   _pd_meas_, _pd_proc_ and _pd_calc_ data items belonging
   to this category may be looped together. In some instances,
   however, it makes more sense to maintain separate tables of
   the data contributing to the measured and processed
   diffractograms (for example, a profile may be calculated
   at 2theta values different from those of the measured
   data points). To facilitate the identification of equivalent
   points in these separate tables, separate identifiers are
   defined.

Examples:

Example 1 - data set collected for a two-phase sample (Al~2~O~3~/Si) by B. H. Toby, '1997-01-29T16:37|POWSET_01|B.Toby|..NIST-D5000'.
