Papers! One of mine and one on detector data read-in

It has been a long time in the making, but now the day has finally come where the 1D Monte Carlo method has been published! To top it off, the publication is open access (courtesy of my current institute: NIMS), and has a wicked showcase document as supplementary material. Feel (very) free to check it […]

Free Code! McSAS: A Monte-Carlo way for retrieving particle size distributions.

Good news for those of you on the hunt for a way to get polydispersity (size distribution) information from your scattering patterns. Two pieces of good news, to be precise! Firstly, the paper that describes my implementation of the method that does exactly this has just been accepted earlier this month for publication in J. […]

A new year, seven publications to write and a short movie

Dear scatterers, First of all, allow me to wish you a very happy 2013, wishing you much comfort, many good meetings and world peace. With that out of the way, this year might be different from others on this weblog, as I have to spend oodles of time on my “favourite” activity: trying to publish. […]

Monte-Carlo fitting of isotropic scattering and observability on arXiv

We have now entered the final two weeks before the Scattering-Bonanza that is SAS2012… Are you feeling the pressure yet? With many good talks lined up for that conference, and many good people attending, I am honestly quite excited! I too will be giving my small contribution in the form of two talks, one at […]

Movie: Monte-carlo fitting of anisotropic scattering

I have worked on monte-carlo procedures for a while now. Initially (while working for Aarhus University), I managed to make these work to extract the particle size distribution from isotropic scattering patterns, and it works fine and quick. Now though, I managed to get this trial-and-error procedure to work for whole 2D pattens as well! […]

New video online- presenting observability

Dear readers, First of all, a merry end-of-year thingie (insert name here) to all of you. Last week, I presented a short 15-minute talk at the MRS-J conference in Yokohama. While it was a nice opportunity to present and meet people, it is a relatively small conference. With that in mind, I decided to re-record […]

More statistics and change of job

Hello dear readers, As a followup on my previous story, a colleague of mine sent me this paper that helps explain the standard deviation, standard error and confidence intervals. A useful, and funny read: Click here. The second noteworthy item is that I have, as of November 1st, started working at the National Institute for […]

Everybody hates statistics…

Everybody hates statistics [1]…   … but it can be of major importance in our small angle world. While very few papers on small-angle scattering discuss statistics, they can tell you whether your observations are real or just imaginary. In addition, statistics will let you know whether you have been able to describe your scattering […]
