### Monte-Carlo: now in 2D!

Small-angle scattering analysis has never been easy for those working with oriented nanostructures (e.g. fibres, processed polymers, rolled metal alloys), whose structure may lead to anisotropic small-angle scattering. Upon the collection of such 2D scattering patterns, one can integrate thin pie-slices of the data to obtain 1D curves and analyse them in the same way as “normal”, isotropic scattering patterns. This way, however, important cross-correlation information is lost. Alternative full-pattern fitting methods have been developed (amongst others during my Ph.D. studies), but they are complicated to tune to the system at hand and can be quite unstable in least-squares [...]
