Getting Started¶

This section allows the user to:

• Become familiar with the Muon Analysis GUI.

• Set file data locations.

This tutorial focuses on the reduction and analysis of Muon data collected from any of the ISIS muon instruments via a Graphical User Interface (GUI). This interface has been specifically designed to guide the user through the data reduction and analysis procedure

The worked examples presented in this tutorial will be analysed using said GUI.

Launch the main Mantid interface by clicking on the MantidWorkbench icon on the desktop

To launch the Muon Analysis GUI follow:

Interfaces > Muon > Muon Analysis

on the tool bar at the top of the main MantidWorkbench window.

The window shown below in Figure 1 should appear. A tab-driven approach guides the user through the standard data reduction and analysis procedure. The functionalities contained in the Home, Grouping, Fitting, and Results tabs are each discussed in turn, though note this tutorial does not currently cover the Phase Table tab. Make sure you have downloaded the data used in this manual before commencing with this tutorial - it can be found here

Setting data file locations¶

Before starting it is best to ensure that Mantid is configured for your needs. In particular, adding paths to directories which contain the worked example data will be useful. All the data used in this workbook can be found in the Reference Material folder.

• Select the default facility and instrument (this will be an option during installation)
