About the Jmol Applet

The Jmol application/applet is open-source software (i.e., the software and source are freely available for use and for developement) that is designed to display chemical molecules. It is similar in appearance and operation to RasMol. See below for a list of examples of Jmol use in the Penn X-ray Facility. To obtain Jmol and see more examples of Jmol use, go to the Jmol website.
