Description : Small Angle Scattering Analysis
SasView is a Small Angle Scattering Analysis Software Package,
originally developed as part of the NSF DANSE project under the name
SansView, now managed by an international collaboration of facilities.
SasView is software for the analysis of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS)
It fits analytic functions describing different types of material
microstructure to experimental data in order to determine the shape,
size and degree of ordering.
SasView also includes tools for calculating scattering length
densities, slit sizes, resolution, fringe thicknesses/d-spacings, the
(Porod) invariant ('total scattering'), and distance distribution
This software is routinely used in scientific institutions to model
and interpret small angle scattering data (SANS,SAXS). A key point of
value is the "marketplace" of SAS models at
http://marketplace.sasview.org/ contributed by the community.
Sasview has been developed as collaboration of international facilities,
including www.diamond.ac.uk, www.umd.edu, www.tnw.tudelft.nl,
www.ansto.gov.au, www.ill.eu, ess-scandinavia.eu, www.isis.stfc.ac.uk,
neutrons.ornl.gov, www.nist.gov and www.utk.edu.
It has python package prequisites:
Some are not yet packaged, and should be considered part of this ITP.
Packaging will be maintained under the Debian Science team.
