entry: (required) NXentry

title: (required) NX_CHAR

start_time: (required) NX_DATE_TIME

definition: (required) NX_CHAR

Official NeXus NXDL schema to which this file conforms

Obligatory value: NXtofsingle

duration: (required) NX_FLOAT

pre_sample_flightpath: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_LENGTH}

This is the flight path before the sample position. This can be determined by a chopper, by the moderator or the source itself. In other words: it the distance to the component which gives the T0 signal to the detector electronics. If another component in the NXinstrument hierarchy provides this information, this should be a link.

user: (required) NXuser

INSTRUMENT: (required) NXinstrument

detector: (required) NXdetector

data[xsize, ysize, ntimechan]: (required) NX_INT

distance[1]: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_LENGTH}

Distance to sample for the center of the detector

time_of_flight[ntimechan]: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_TIME_OF_FLIGHT}

polar_angle[ndet]: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_ANGLE}

polar angle for each detector element

azimuthal_angle[ndet]: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_ANGLE}

azimuthal angle for each detector element

SAMPLE: (required) NXsample

name: (required) NX_CHAR

Descriptive name of sample

nature: (required) NX_CHAR

Any of these values: powder | liquid | single crystal

MONITOR: (required) NXmonitor

mode: (required) NX_CHAR

Count to a preset value based on either clock time (timer) or received monitor counts (monitor).

Any of these values: monitor | timer

preset: (required) NX_FLOAT

preset value for time or monitor

distance: (required) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_LENGTH}
