Bragg Edge Modeling
This python package provides tools to model and help analyze neutron Bragg Edge imaging data.
Main functionality: given lattice structure of a material and optionally a texture model and an instrument beam model, calculate neutron Bragg Edge spectrum as a function of neutron wavelength.
- Calculation of basic Bragg Edge spectrum from crystal structure specification, assuming an isotropic powder sample, and accounting for various contributions to neutron scattering including, for example, diffraction and inelastic scattering (using incoherent approximation)
- Modeling of texture:
- March Dollase
- Modeling of peak profile:
- Jorgensen model
- Flexible design to allow future extension to texture and peak profile models
- Allow easy fitting to measured Bragg Edge data
