The in situ GIXS heuristic tool for efficient reduction of grazing-incidence scattering data

INSIGHT (In-Situ GIXS Heuristic Tool) is a python-based data reduction and visualization tool for 2D detector data of in-situ grazing-incidence X-ray small- and wide-angle scattering with powerful batch processing abilities to help investigate the time-evolution of the inner morphology in thin films.



Efficient reduction of 2D grazing-incidence X-ray scattering (GIXS) data becomes more computational demanding with technical developments that increase the detector time-resolution and pixel number. Thus, we are developing INSIGHT that allows for computationally efficient reduction of GIXS data, giving full access to the raw data while a first reduction can be done directly at the beamline.

INSIGHT is still under development and a publication and first official release are in preparation. Code written by Manuel A. Reus & Lennart K. Reb.
