Papers and Presentations

  • The DANSE Construction Proposal gives a thorough description of the components of the DANSE system, and information on interoperability (50 pages 0.8 MB pdf).
  • The DANSE white paper is an earlier, shorter, description of DANSE (DANSE white paper (
  • Experimental Inelastic Neutron Scattering This free book explains the science and basic algorithms used for the reduction of inelastic neutron scattering data. It is a 200+ page LaTeX book with index and table of contents, written by the ARCS team over several years. Its intent is to take the reader from the basic scattering physics to the types of data analyses that are used. It is not documentation for specific software components, however. (2.0 MB pdf (
  • Distributed Analysis of Neutron Scattering Data on the TeraGrid This report explains at a conceptual level the issues that must be addressed if DANSE is to run on the TeraGrid. It is a report from Caltech to ORNL by McKerns, McCorquodale, and Fultz. (pdf (
