Top 10 Reasons for Using Durango
Analysis is Free
Durango without a hardware key and license code supports all analysis functions
and file saving. Download and install Durango on as many computers as
like. Exchange data files with your colleagues. A paid commercial license
and hardware key are needed only for acquisition of new data.
Affordable Commercial License
A full permanent Durango Commercial License with first year Support and Upgrade
Subscription is $6950. All software features are included in the basic license
fee. A suitable computer, frame grabber and DAQ board add perhaps another
No Proprietary Hardware
Durango supports a wide and growing choice of hardware configurations. If a camera
can record your interferogram and an actuator can shift the fringes, Durango can probably
work with your interferometer.
Durango uses only published algorithms and you can check the arithmetic. Durango does not
subsample or discard data points except per your explicit instructions.
You can change analysis options while at the interferometer or any time later. Durango
automatically recomputes results from your raw measurement data. Durango's calculation
engine is fully interruptable, so you never need to wait before making additional
Support and Upgrades
Diffraction International understands
optical figure metrology. We are continually adding new features and capabilities
to Durango and we do listen to your input.
Designed for Windows
Durango code is 32-bit and multi-threaded. Durango can use your full display resolution and multiple
processors. Cut and paste bitmap and spreadsheet data to and from other applications.
Durango can quickly and properly unwrap even noisy, low contrast data. With our newly
enhanced calculation engine, algorithm failures and program crashes are rare.
Durango can run on a laptop computer, adding as little as 5 pounds to your interferometer
system. Plus you can ditch that B&W video monitor.
Great Learning/Teaching Tool
With its non-proprietary algorithms, ability to save raw measurement data, and free
licensing of all analysis functions, Durango is the perfect tool for learning the
basics and subtleties of interferometry data analysis using real or synthetic data
