Software for Neutron Scattering.
[23aug18] We are right now recruiting one more scientific software developer with background in physics, mathematics, or crystallography, to work on single-crystal data analysis, in close collaboration with the ILL. For details and a link to the application form, see here.
Our mission is the development, integration, and maintenance of data-analysis software for specific scattering techniques:
: Simulate and fit grazing-incidence small-angle scattering (GISAS).
High-resolution inelastic scattering (Time-of-flight, backscattering):
: Convert neutron raw data to scattering law S(q,w)
: The Swiss Army Knife of Spectral Data Analysis
: Multiple-scattering simulation
Generic data correction
: Absorption correction for X-ray and neutron diffraction
Single crystal diffraction data analysis
: single crystal diffraction toolkit
We also contribute generic open-source software:
: A C library for Levenberg-Marquardt minimization and least-squares fitting.
: A C library providing complex error, Dawson, Faddeeva, and Voigt functions.
: A C library providing an efficient implementation of the Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts function (Fourier-Laplace transform of the stretched exponential function).
: A C library for sampling random events from a discrete distribution.
: Neutron transmission calculator (beta preview)
Technical Notes of general interest:
We offer hosting of software and documentation on our DokuWiki and git server.
Little command-line scripts for download:
: Next departures of U6 trains from Garching-Forschungszentrum

Opportunities for students
At any moment, we offer interesting subjects for internships (Werkstudent, Studienarbeit, Praxissemester) and for theses (B. Sc., M. Sc., Ph. D.) in physics, numerical mathematics or computer science.
To apply, please write to email@example.com. Specify for which space of time and for how many hours per week you are available. Send all documents as a single PDF attachment.
We participate in several national and international initiatives:
High Data Rate Processing and Analysis Initiative of the German Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft
Photon and Neutron Data Infrastructure
A common data format for neutron, x-ray and muon science
