Description: ISODISTORT is a user-friendly internet-based tool for exploring the structural distortion modes of crystalline materials induced by irreducible representations of the parent space-group symmetry. The stand-alone ISOVIZ application further allows one to visualize and interactively manipulate the modes generated in ISODISTORT.

NOTE: Interactive visualizations must now be saved to disk and opened with the standalone ISOVIZ application.
