History: The backbone of the code was originally created by Jacob L. Jones when he was a post doc back in 2006-2007. In 2014, Chris M. Fancher continued development of the code created by Jacob and successfully turned it into a class file within MATLAB. Giovanni Esteves further built upon Chris's version by polishing the code and adding features to enhances its feasibility to new users. Finally, in 2016 Klarissa Ramos joined the Jones Research group and jointly with Giovanni they restructured the class file into a graphical user interface (GUI) which is now known as LIPRAS.
LIPRAS [LEEP-ruhs], short for Line-Profile Analysis Software, is a graphical user interface for least-squares fitting of Bragg peaks in powder diffraction data. For any region of the inputted data, user can choose which profile functions to apply to the fit, constrain profile functions, and view the resulting fit in terms of the profile functions chosen. A Bayesian inference analysis can be carried out on the resulting least-squares result to generate a full description of the errors for all profile parameters.
Why use LIPRAS? You can use LIPRAS to visualize and analyze diffraction data.
Requires MATLAB 2016b, Curve Fitting Toolbox, and GUI Layout Toolbox
You can start using LIPRAS in MATLAB after downloading GUI Layout Toolbox with a MATLAB version 2016b or greater thats equipped with Curve Fitting Toolbox. The Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox is required for Bayesian analysis, but not for peak fitting.

Stand-Alone Version (NO MATLAB NEEDED)
This version is not updated as often as the GitHub repository since it needs to be compiled using a specific MATLAB license on a specific computer.
