FORCinel v. 2.0: A whole new way to create FORC diagrams!
FORCinel is a free software package for the processing and analysis of First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) diagrams. The software is written using Igor Pro by Wavemetrics. Although Igor Pro is a commercial package, Wavemetrics offer a fully functional demo version for both Mac and Windows, so you can download it and get started right away! The full version of Igor Pro is available to students at a heavily discounted price.
