Overview​​​​

Gudrun is the principal software package for reducing total scattering data taken on the Disordered Materials instruments. It comes with predefined settings for SANDALS, NIMROD, GEM and POLARIS at ISIS and D4c at the ILL. The package contains both neutron (GudrunN) and x-ray (GudrunX) variants, the latter being suitable for reduction of data taken on the group's laboratory x-ray diffractometers​, as well as synchrotron data.

GudrunN allows the removal of instrument and sample backgrounds, performs sample attenuation and multiple scattering corrections, and places the data on an absolute scale (typically by normalising to a standard such as vanadium). It also allows systematic reduction of inelasticity effects arising from the presence of light elements such as hydrogen.

GudrunX allows removal of instrument and sample backgrounds, and performs co​rrections for polarisation, attenuation, multiple scattering, sample fluorescence, and Compton scattering, and normalises to tabulated atomic form factors.
