How to transform your data
To standardise and simplify the analysis of reflectivity data the software code SURFace has been developed at ISIS. The SURFace code is able to simulate and fit data using an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface. In such an environment the user is free to vary any of the parameters through sliders and text input boxes and immediately see the effect on the calculated reflectivity profile. The data input is based around easily transportable ASCII files
The SURFace code is ideally suited to simulating many of the experimental geometries measured on the SURF and CRISP reflectometers at ISIS, for example solid-liquid interfaces, solid air etc.. In addition data can be fitted using a SIMPLEX algorithm developed by D.S. Sivia (ISIS). The code is freely available and can be installed easily on a PC platform running Windows95/WindowsNT. Given the development status of the code comments on possible improvements and software faults are most welcome. Current projects include an interface for multi-layer samples and an analysis suite for polarised neutron reflectivity data. For any further questions or comments and information on how to obtain the software please contact John Webster (extension 63181, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sean Langridge (extension 5269, email@example.com).
