RMCProfile can determine local structure and average atomic arrangements in a range of materials, including amorphous and polycrystalline materials, using a Reverse Monte Carlo algorithm.

The current version of RMCProfile results from a collaboration between scientists at ISIS, SNS, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Queen Mary University of London & NIST
