I'm currently using BornAgain to simulate buried structures in relatively thick films (200-300nm). In this context I've been reviewing some recent articles, and occasionally see a mention of slicing algorithms when working with buried nanostructures. In particular, I'm refering to the article "Waveguide-enhanced grazing-incidence small-angle x-ray scattering of buried nanostructures in thin films".
I'll admit that my understanding of the mathematical details of DWBA are somewhat limited, but I was wondering if something like this was implemented in BornAgain? I've tried "slicing" my sample manually by simply stiching together similar layers (e.g. standing cylinders in a 200nm layer vs. 4 layers of standing cylinders in 50nm layers), and the results differ based on the number of slices.
Also, thanks for a great piece of software, the Python API is amazingly simple to worth with and your documentation is top notch!
