Everything and the kitchen sink: Correcting X-ray data for everything

Presenter: Brian R. Pauw, Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, Berlin

No matter whether you are doing X-ray diffraction or scattering, at wide or small angles, in a lab or at a synchrotron, you will need a bespoke sequence of up to twenty different corrections before it gets about right (at our latest count). Our library now does this automatically and reliably to get you the data you deserve – in absolute units and with uncertainty estimates – without the pain. This talk will highlight the development of the modular library, the sequence and its foundation, show its applicability to real-world datasets, and highlight a possible way forward.

"Looking at nothing" is a small weblog by Dr. Brian R. Pauw, containing information and insights that (mostly) focus on small-angle X-ray scattering. Since its inception in 2006, it has provided a steady outlet for small clarifications of the method as well as short investigations into specifics, and has been used by many new researchers to gain more knowledge on the topic. In its current state, it is getting about 20,000 views on average per year.
