The 2D "QxQy ASCII" output files of SANS data are of the format below. Based on the instrument settings, each pixel of the 2D detector data is converted into Qx and Qy. The 2D detector is a normal XY coordinate system when viewed from the neutron source. Qx and Qy both positive is a point in the upper right quadrant and both negative is a point in the lower left quadrant. What corrections have been applied to the data depend on what (if any) reduction steps were applied before exporting the file.

In each file there is a header of information describing the sample information (gleaned from the raw data file) and information about the processing steps that were taken to generate the reduced data file. The data is in a 3-column format where the 3 columns are:

1- Qx (1/Angstrom)
2- Qy (1/Angstrom)
3- I(Qx,Qy) (1/cm)

No errors are currently carried with the data.

(only a snippet of the file is shown here)
