Support for additional data formats

We have been asked about missing support for certain data formats. Since this question is of general interest, I'll respond here.

Yes, we intend to enable BornAgain to read all data formats produced by GISAS instruments. To do so, we need your input. If BornAgain fails to read your data, then please request support by responding to this post. In your post please specify:

  • How was your data file generated?
  • What is the format of your file, to the best of your knowledge?
  • Did you succeed in opening the file with a graphic program? Did you see a physically plausible detector image?

Attach

  • the data file,
  • the detector image, extracted from the very same data file, and saved in a standard image format (preferably JPG or PNG).

Thank you for your cooperation.

  • How was your data file generated? DESY P03, Pilatus 1M Detektor
  • What is the format of your file, to the best of your knowledge? CBF-file
  • Did you succeed in opening the file with a graphic program? Did you see a physically plausible detector image? No.Unfortunately the forum doesn't allow me to upload the cbf-file. Should there be any interest i can send it via mail.

  • How was your data file generated? Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, BL 1
  • What is the format of your file, to the best of your knowledge? TIF file (8 Bit)
  • Did you succeed in opening the file with a graphic program? Did you see a physically plausible detector image? 1) Yes 2) No.Should there be any interest i can send the tif file via mail.

Yes, we will investigate your two data formats, though perhaps not immediately.

Please be so kind to send us the image files by mail, or provide us a dropbox link.
