RHEED_DIFF_2D is an open-source software capable of performing qualitative numerical simulations of changes to the intensity of RHEED oscillations in the function of the layer deposited, employing various models of scattering crystal potential for heteroepitaxial structures of bcc (001) films nucleated on a fcc (001) surface, including the possible existence of various diffuse scattering models through the layer parallel to the surface. This model can be used for interpreting data weakly dependent on the azimuth of the incident electron beam direction and for 2D monolayer-by-monolayer growth modes. The program does not use any external data sources.
