Challenges of Mechanochemistry: Is In Situ Real‐Time Quantitative Phase Analysis Always Reliable? A Case Study of Organic Salt Formation

PMCID: 5604370
PMID: 28932677
DOI: 10.1002/advs.201700132

[…] 696 Å was used, and powder patterns were collected every 0.4 s. Data were averaged by summing 10 detector frames, giving a total time resolution of 4 s. Integration of 2D data was performed using the PyFAI azimuthal integration methodology. Hybrid‐Methodology: To ensure sufficient sampling across the time domain, 20 integrated powder diffraction patterns were Rietveld refined using GSAS,, Figure […]


Processing two dimensional X ray diffraction and small angle scattering data in DAWN 2

J Appl Crystallogr
PMCID: 5458597
PMID: 28656043
DOI: 10.1107/S1600576717004708

[…] languages (Nika; Ilavsky, 2012). In contrast to this are open-source developments using freely available languages, primarily Python [GSAS-II (Toby & Von Dreele, 2013), DPDAK (Benecke et al., 2014), pyFAI (Ashiotis et al., 2015) and DIOPTAS (Prescher & Prakapenka, 2015)]. Packages are often targeted at a particular experiment (DIOPTAS for PXRD, DPDAK for SAXS) and some are based on an extensible […]


Automatic processing of multimodal tomography datasets

J Synchrotron Radiat
PMCID: 5182025
PMID: 28009564
DOI: 10.1107/S1600577516017756

[…] to representative patterns (Fig. 2). This is an example of a one-to-one I/O mapping, but where the data changes shape. Here, we have written a plugin using the CPU implementation of the ESRF package pyFAI (Kieffer & Karkoulis, 2013). This choice demonstrates one of the central tenets of Savu; that we should not reinvent the wheel for processes that already have heavily optimized solutions. The CP […]


Online ion exchange chromatography for small angle X ray scattering

Acta Crystallogr D Struct Biol
PMCID: 5053136
PMID: 27710930
DOI: 10.1107/S2059798316012833

[…] x at the sample position was of the order of 5 × 1011 photons s−1 in 700 × 700 µm. A summary of the acquisition parameters is given in Table 1. All images were automatically azimuthally averaged with pyFAI (Ashiotis et al., 2015; Kieffer & Wright, 2013; Kieffer & Karkoulis, 2013).Online purification was performed with a high-pressure liquid-chromatography (HPLC) system (Shimadzu, France) consistin […]


The solution configurations of inactive and activated DntR have implications for the sliding dimer mechanism of LysR transcription factors

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4730206
PMID: 26817994
DOI: 10.1038/srep19988
call_split See protocol

[…] atched buffer measurements taken before and after every sample measurement were averaged and used for background subtraction. Individual exposures were processed automatically and independently using PyFAI as implemented in the EDNA framework yielding radially averaged curves of normalized intensity versus scattering angle. For each exposure series additional data reduction used the automatic data […]


BINoculars: data reduction and analysis software for two dimensional detectors in surface X ray diffraction

J Appl Crystallogr
PMCID: 4520292
PMID: 26306093
DOI: 10.1107/S1600576715009607

[…] latter can be seen as an implementation of the reciprocal-space integration method, recently described by Drnec et al. (2014). As a whole, BINoculars can be seen as an N-dimensional generalization of PyFAI (Kieffer & Karkoulis, 2013), xrayutilities (Kriegner et al., 2013) and FEP3D (Gaudet et al., 2013), optimized for (but not limited to) surface X-ray diffraction.
