Primitive Unit Cell Extraction

Version 2.0

The main purpose of this code is unsupervised and accurate primitive unit cell extraction from crystal images. The method and code was developed for crystallographers and material scientists. However, it is designed to find the symmetry axes and corresponding periods in generic periodic images and could therefore be of use in other applications as well.

The program is intended to be executed in a terminal using a text file to specify the input file and output directory.

Please refer to the README for instructions on how to compile and run.
