SANS Changes¶

ILL¶

• LoadILLSANS is upgraded to load the modern nexus files from instruments D11, D22 and D33 at the ILL.

SNS¶

• EQSANS is configured for live data

ISIS SANS Interface¶

New¶

• A string of wavelength ranges can now be specified. A reduction is then done for each wavelength range.

Improvements¶

• Transmission workspaces are now output by default from the new GUI.

• The Beam centre finder now takes the default radius limits from the instrument parameter file if specified.

• Updated old backend to mask by detector ID rather than spectrum number, improving reliability.

• Added EventSlice option to options column in new GUI.

• Added thickness column to table in new GUI.

• Added Radius Cutoff and Wavelength Cutoff boxes to the old and new GUI.

• Improved error messages in the new GUI to be more obvious and clearer.

• Updated the naming of workspace groups in a sliced reduction.

• Updated old backend to mask by detector ID rather than spectrum number, improving reliability.

• NXcanSAS is now saved out with a .h5 extension so it can be read into SASView.

Bugfixes¶

• The beam stop arm is now masked on LOQ for the new backend.

• Fixed a bug in the old backend where for LOQ the high angle bank was not being centered correctly in some cases.

• User files specified in the batch file are now being loaded into the new GUI.

• The new sans GUI will now save out all the outputs of a time sliced reduction.

• Fixed a bug where save_format was not being specified if a user file was entered for a row.

• Use gravity now defaulting to false.
