Working with BornAgain

A simulation of GISAS using BornAgain consists of following steps:

  • define materials by specifying name and refractive index
  • define layers by specifying thickness, roughness, material
  • define embedded particles by specifying shape, size, constituting material, interference function
  • include particles in layers, specifying density, position, orientation
  • assemble a multilayered sample
  • specify input beam and detector characteristics
  • run the simulation
  • save the simulated detector image

All these steps can be organized in either a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or by providing a Python script with the simulation description. Follow links below to explore both possibilities.
