Workshops and Tutorials

Monday, June 3

8:45 a.m.–6:00 p.m. Bldg 8600 Room C-156
WAND2 – Possibilities and New Science through 2D-PSD (Satellite to SHUG User Meeting) 

To register, please click here.

Organizer: Mattias Frontzek, Neutron Scattering Scientist, Neutron Scattering Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

This one-day workshop will feature talks by international and domestic experts working with 2D-PSD diffractometers and allow for discussions with the WAND2 instrument team.

The program is aimed to attract new users and young scientists who like to learn about the performance of WAND² and the advantages of WAND² for their specific scientific question.

 

10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Bldg 8600 Room C-152
Visualization for Single Crystal Inelastic Neutron Scattering Experiments

To register, choose this tutorial on the User registration page.

Speaker: Andrei Savici, Software Scientist, Neutron Scattering Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory 

The first steps in understanding the lattice or magnetic excitations measured with inelastic neutron scattering is the reduction (transformation from time of flight to momentum and energy transfer) and visualization of data. This tutorial is targeted towards users of direct geometry inelastic instruments (ARCS/CNCS/HYSPEC/SEQUOIA). It aims to introduce users to the new workflow of generating multi-dimensional datasets, taking cuts and slices, and making plots using Mantid and the matplotlib python library. Following a brief theoretical description, users will have an opportunity to perform hands on data processing and visualization. A basic knowledge of Python programming is a prerequisite for this tutorial. Example datasets from SEQUOIA or HYSPEC instruments will be provided. The analysis.sns.gov compute facility will be available for the users to work through the tutorial (please bring a laptop).

SasView Tutorial
To register, choose this tutorial on the User registration page. Registration is limited to 12 participants.

Speaker: Dr. Mathieu Doucet, Senior R&D Staff, Neutron Scattering Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory 

SasView is an open source project to provide data analysis for small-angle scattering. SasView reads most common 1D data formats and reads reduced 2D formats produced by various reduction packages including Mantid. SasView provides several tools for modeling SANS data. About 90 models are available to fit 1D data. Several of those models can also be used to analyze non-azimuthally symmetric 2D data. Wedges tools can also be applied to 2D data to compute I(Q). Although SasView has mostly been focused on modeling, it also offers other tools such as a P(r) calculator, an SLD calculator and image processing tools. In this tutorial, we will look at the main features of SasView and highlight some of the recent improvements of version 4.2.

 

9:00 a.m.–10:30 a.m. Bldg 8600 C-152
