BornAgain 1.0.0 released
BornAgain is a free and open-source software package to simulate and fit small-angle scattering at grazing-incidence.
The Scientific Computing Group of MLZ Garching announces release 1.0 of BornAgain, a free and open-source software package to simulate and fit small-angle scattering at grazing-incidence.
BornAgain uses Distorted Wave Born Approximation (DWBA) to compute scattering images for X-ray or neutron scattering (GISAXS, GISANS). Polarized neutrons are also supported. Samples can be composed of
arbitrarily complex multilayers with smooth or rough interfaces, and with various types of embedded nanoparticles.
BornAgain is a multi-platform software, with active support for Windows, MacOS and Linux. Simulations and fits can be controlled through Python scripts. A growing part of the functionality is also available through a Graphical User Interface.
The Scientific Computing Group of MLZ Garching is committed to provide long-time support for BornAgain and are looking forward to user feedback. It welcomes discussions and scientific collaborations if extensions of BornAgain are needed to meet special requests.
