In this project you will:
- Study and simulate how pieces of X-ray scattering equipment interact.
- Develop a calculation engine used world wide.
- Understand sources of noise in X-ray experiments.
- Learn how to program physics calculations efficiently in c.
X-ray scattering instruments at large scale facilities such as MAX IV (http://maxiv.lu.se/),
), and ESRF (http://www.esrf.eu/
), are very complicated "beasts". The instruments are built from hundreds of active pieces of equipment all acting together to deliver a well-formed beam of X-rays onto a sample. Unfortunately those same pieces of equipment have unwanted side-effects forming sources of noise.
In particular, the combined effect of two or more object is often very difficult to calculate. We will build upon a concept developed for neutron scattering and implement a solution for X-rays.
