HKL package

The HKL suite is a package of programs intended for the analysis of X-ray diffraction data collected from single crystals. It consists of three parts: XdisplayF for visualization of the diffraction pattern, Denzo for data reduction and integration, and Scalepack for merging and scaling of the intensities obtained by Denzo or other programs.

The package is distributed in form of the compiled executables. The supported operating systems are listed on Hardware/OS page.

Key Benefits

  • Flexible, weighted, profile fitting algorithm for accurate measuring of the intensity of the diffraction spots
  • Automatic indexing
  • Positional refinement  based on partially recorded reflections for high accuracy and computational stability
  • Visualization of the data in the original form as well as the progress of data reduction
  • Scaling and merging of different data sets and global refinement of crystal parameters


Please note that the HKL package is no longer in distribution. It is only available to users, who acquired the license in the past.
