The group is recognized for their development of an innovative, cloud-based software suite for the treatment of neutron and X-ray scattering data. This graphical, easy-to-use tool allows users of NIST neutron and X-ray instrumentation to view and reduce their data from anywhere in the world with nothing more than an internet connection and a modern browser. Their novel software solution is secure for both NIST and the end user and has been regularly expanded to include new scattering instruments as research capabilities evolve.
