    v67 v68  
    55The NCNR has a long history of providing easy to use data reduction and analysis tools to its users. In the case of the SANS and USANS instruments, this is through a set of macros and functions implemented using the IGOR Pro™ package from Wavemetrics Inc, which is a general purpose plotting and data analysis package with a rich in-built programming language.

    7 With the opening of new neutron scattering user facilities at  the Oak Ridge National Lab (HIFR cold source), ANSTO in Australia (OPAL reactor) and KAERI in South Korea (HANARO cold source) we are taking the opportunity to expand the packages we provide. 
     7Our current focus is to support the development of software to support the newly-commissioned VSANS instrument at the NCNR. The broad and flexible capabilities of the VSANS instrument provide opportunities for new science, leading to the development of new tools for processing and analyzing this data.

    9 One initiative is to explore collaboration with the above mentioned facilities to produce a shared code base of IGOR procedures for the reduction and analysis of small angle scattering data. This would provide to users a familiar environment whichever facility they use and make co-analysis of data from different facilities much simpler, an often heard refrain from the nomadic scattering community. In the version 7.10 Release of the NCNR Package, users can load and reduce data collected at HFIR (BioSANS and HiResSANS, code modifications provided by the DANSE project), ILL (D22), and ANSTO (Quokka). 
     9One initiative we are still open to is exploring collaboration with other scattering facilities to produce a shared code base of IGOR procedures for the reduction and analysis of small angle scattering data. This would provide to users a familiar environment whichever facility they use and make co-analysis of data from different facilities much simpler, an often heard refrain from the nomadic scattering community. In the version 7.10 Release of the NCNR Package, users can load and reduce data collected at HFIR (BioSANS and HiResSANS, code modifications provided by the DANSE project), ILL (D22), and ANSTO (Quokka).

    1111Another initiative in conjunction with the scattering community is to produce reduced (1D, I(Q)) data in a common, standardized output format. Beginning with the 7.0 release, the NCNR package writes data in canSAS XML format. This data format is a product of international canSAS meetings, and the format is supported by many other facilities (ISIS, APS (Argonne), + others to be named later).
