Data Reduction, Visualization and Analysis

Getting your data

Raw data from non-proprietary experiments is available in our data repository at http://dx.doi.org/10.18434/T4201B (also available by ftp:// at the same location), as specified in our Data Management Plan.

Available software

There are a number of software packages available to NCNR users.  Some must be used locally at the NCNR and others may be downloaded and used at your home institution.  This page is a list of the available programs organized by topic.  Those programs that can be downloaded are indicated with a D in parentheses (D) but most of these programs can be run locally on JAZZ.  The platforms supported for the downloadable programs are indicated within the web pages.

CRYSTALLOGRAPHY

The following software were originally developed by Brian Toby while a staff member at the NCNR. They are currently being maintained at ANL, with links provided here for your convenience. 


REFLECTIVITY

Reduction, visualization and analysis of data from the PBR, MAGIK,  and NG-7 reflectometers (with future support for CANDOR).  Support for the reflectivity programs: paul.kienzle [at] nist.gov (Paul Kienzle) 

 

INELASTIC NEUTRON SCATTERING

  • DAVE (D)
    For reduction, visualization and analysis of data from DCS, FCS, HFBS, SPINS, FANS (BT-4), BT2, BT7 and BT9.  
    Support for DAVE: richard.azuah [at] nist.gov (Richard Azuah) 
  • XTREAT, TANQENS 
    For reduction and analysis of data from FCS
    Support for XTREAT and TANQENS: taner [at] nist.gov (Taner Yildirim) and craig.brown [at] nist.gov (Craig Brown) 
  • FIT (D)
    For fitting generic columnar-formatted datasets.
    Support for FIT: ross.erwin [at] nist.gov (Ross Erwin) 

SANS

Support for SANS software: jkrzywon [at] nist.gov (Jeff Krzywon) 

  • IGOR* programs (D)
    For reduction and visualization of data from USANS, NG-B 30m SANS, NG-B 10m and NG-7 SANS
  • SasView (D)
    For analysis of data from USANS, NG-B 30m SANS, NG-B 10m and NG-7 SANS

In addition to the resources above, there are a number web-accessible tools for experimental planning and simulation:

DVA Team

The DVA team is responsible for meeting the visualization and analysis software needs of the NCNR scientific staff and user community.  There are a number of software packages listed above that are relatively mature and some that are in the development phase.  The two major efforts currently in the development phase are the DAVE project and reflectivity software development.
