Positive feedback from alpha tester

Concluding comment from an alpha tester:  Congratulations to you both and the team, this is a triumph. How far computing and graphics have come!

Alpha testing

We are currently testing the alpha release of PoreXpert version 2, both in the UK and mainland Europe.  We are currently on track for the beta release to all our patiently waiting customers late in July.

Portugese translation

26 June 2020

Thanks to Sara of Frontier IP, PoreXpert v2 will now be available in Portugese, as well as fully updated Italian, German, Spanish and French.

Encryption speed test

19 June 2020

A problem with PoreXpert versions up to 1.8 was that the encryption necessary to protect the software slowed it down.  Using newly purchased software we have been working to improve the speed of the most commonly used operations, and have successfully applied it so they now run comparably as fast for our users as for ourselves.  The graph compares the speed of calculation for a (small) 12x12x12 unit cell, with about 4300 void features – fitting for Vertically Banded and Small Centre Zone structure types (short range size auto-correlations), absolute permeability to water at 20C, and ionic tortuosity.

Free cell viewer download

11 June 2020

The cell viewer is now available as a signed Microsoft Installer file from the Downloads page, so that you can see void structures in virtual 3D on your own PC. Many interesting void structures of geometric and real samples are being loaded there.

We are now busy preparing the Sentinel security dongles and download system for the v2 alpha release.

v2 alpha release testing

8 May 2020

Revised user manual

28 April 2020

PoreXpert version 2 is a significant advance on the previous version (1.8), so a new, nearly 200 page User Manual has been written to accompany it.
