application definition, extends NXobject
raw, monochromatic 2-D SAS data with an area detector
This is an application definition for raw data (not processed or reduced data) from a 2-D small angle scattering instrument collected with a monochromatic beam and an area detector. It is meant to be suitable both for neutron SANS and X-ray SAXS data.
It covers all raw data from any monochromatic SAS techniques that use an area detector: SAS, WSAS, grazing incidence, GISAS
It covers all raw data from any SAS techniques that use an area detector and a monochromatic beam.
The symbol(s) listed here will be used below to coordinate datasets with the same shape.

This is area detector data, of number of x-pixel versus number of y-pixels. Since the beam center is to be determined as a step of data reduction, it is not necessary to document or assume the position of the beam center in acquired data.
The distance between detector and sample
Physical size of a pixel in x-direction
Size of a pixel in y direction
This is the x position where the direct beam would hit the detector. This is a length, not a pixel position, and can be outside of the actual detector.
This is the y position where the direct beam would hit the detector. This is a length, not a pixel position, and can be outside of the actual detector.
