SANS Data Reduction Macros

What's New in SANS Reduction Package Version 7.20 -- June 2013

  • Polarization procedures have been improved
  • Full support for the new 10m SANS instrument at NGB have been added, includeing SASCALC
  • Event mode data can now be processed through a convenient panel. Data collected in oscillatory, stream, TOF, or TISANE modes can be visualized, sliced, and processed. An XOP has been written to speed up the processing of these (often) very large files. See Event Mode Data
  • A panel to allow batch fitting of a single model to a large number of data sets has been implemented. It allows full control of the input guesses, data range, and held and constrained parameters. Once the starting information is gathered, the fits run unattended and save reports of the results. See: Auto Fit (or Batch Fitting)
  • Package loaders for processing data from various facilities have been consolidated onto the Macros menu rather than separate templates. Data handlers from different facilities cannot be loaded into the same experiment.

What's New in SANS Reduction Package Version 7.10 -- March 2012

  • Polarization reduction procedures have been added
  • Full 2D error propagation has been added. It can be exported as 2D QxQy? ASCII and used for 2D analysis in the NCNR Analysis macros or SASView.
  • Gravity effects have been fully included in the 2D resolution function

What's New in SANS Reduction Package Version 7.0 -- April 2010

  • Simulation of SANS data has been added. Working with the Analysis models, you can now optimize the instrument setup for the expected scattering of your sample while also obtaining estimates of countrates and counting statistics in a simulated data set. See SASCALC , Simulation of 1D SANS Data, and Simulation of 2D SANS Data.
  • Reduction and Analysis can now be carried out in the same Igor experiment. Reduction and analysis modules can be loaded as needed, and hidden when no longer in use.
  • Patching of raw data files is now easier with improved filtering to locate files.
  • General arithmetic operations can now be performed on two 1D data sets, improving the former Subtract_1D operation.

Future releases will include support for new instrumentation at the NCNR, including TISANE and the planned VSANS instrument.
