VULCAN Neutron Data Status

Neutron event data are collected, streamed, translated with metadata to event NeXus data, reduced to GSAS format for every single run including a summary (AutoRecordData.txt). All the data are stored under the 'shared' folder under IPTS proposal folder and can be accessed via with your user account. Further reduction, visualization, and analysis can be done by using the VDRIVE software on the analysis server. The stored data, as well as analyzed data, can be downloaded via SFTP. See the guidance page for more details.
