application definition, extends NXobject
This definition covers the common parts of all monochromatic single crystal raw data application definitions.
The symbol(s) listed here will be used below to coordinate datasets with the same shape.
nP: Number of points
nXPixels: Number of X pixels
nYPixels: Number of Y pixels
- Groups cited:
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
instrument: (required) NXinstrument
source: (required) NXsource
monochromator: (required) NXmonochromator
detector: (required) NXdetector
The name of the group is detector if there is only one detector, if there are several, names have to be detector1, detector2, …detectorn.
data[nP, nXPixels, nYPixels]: (required) NX_INT
The area detector data, the first dimension is always the number of scan points, the second and third are the number of pixels in x and y. The origin is always assumed to be in the center of the detector. maxOccurs is limited to the the number of detectors on your instrument.
@signal: (required) NX_POSINT
frame_start_number: (required) NX_INT
This is the start number of the first frame of a scan. In PX one often scans a couple of frames on a give sample, then does something else, then returns to the same sample and scans some more frames. Each time with a new data file. This number helps concatenating such measurements.
sample: (required) NXsample
name: (required) NX_CHAR
Descriptive name of sample
orientation_matrix[3, 3]: (required) NX_FLOAT
The orientation matrix according to Busing and Levy conventions. This is not strictly necessary as the UB can always be derived from the data. But let us bow to common usage which includes the UB nearly always.
unit_cell: (required) NX_FLOAT
The unit cell, a, b, c, alpha, beta, gamma. Again, not strictly necessary, but normally written.
temperature[nP]: (required) NX_FLOAT
The sample temperature or whatever sensor represents this value best
Translation of the sample along the X-direction of the laboratory coordinate system
Translation of the sample along the Y-direction of the laboratory coordinate system
Translation of the sample along the Z-direction of the laboratory coordinate system
control: (required) NXmonitor
DATA: (required) NXdata
The name of this group id data if there is only one detector; if there are several the names will be data1, data2, data3 and will point to the corresponding detector groups in the instrument hierarchy.
