Title: Transformation of x-ray server from a set of WWW-accessed programs into WWW-based library for remote calls from x-ray data analysis software.

Abstract

X-ray Server [x-server.gmca.aps.anl.gov] is a public project providing a collection of online software tools for modeling data in the fields of surface X-ray scattering and grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction from thin solid films and multilayers with account for the effects of crystal lattice strains, magnetization and interface roughness. This paper reports on recent developments that are addressing numerous requests to expand the Server access beyond plain web browser sessions and facilitate batch processing, remote fitting and integration of Server programs into users' data analysis software.

  • Attaching WWW interfaces to scientific software opens new opportunities to researchers by making their results available to wide scientific community in a way complimentary to publication. We have shown that this task may be much easier than many used to think: the amount of additional code is small, the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) can be written in any language, not necessarily PERL, and the software can be interfaced on any operating system it was originally written and does not have to be ported to UNIX. This paper provides some useful recipes resulted from seven years of author's experience in developingmore » and maintaining highly successful X-ray Web server project. All these solutions are based on free public domain software (Apache, GnuPlot, and InfoZip) and applicable for multiple computer platforms. Some practical examples are provided.« less
  • X-ray fluorescence (XRF) imaging of biological cells typically involves the creation (and subsequent analysis) of 3-dimensional (3D) data sets, where at each scan position the full spectrum is recorded. This allows one to later process the data in a variety of different approaches, e.g., by spectral region of interest (ROIn) summation with or without background subtraction, principal component analysis, or fitting. Additionally, it is possible to sum up the per pixel spectra over selected spatial ROIs so as to improve the photon statistics in such a spectrum. A software package is presented here that implements these functions to provide amore » tool set for the analysis of 3D XRF data sets.« less
  • The Safeguards Technology Program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is developing isotopic analysis software that is constructed to be adaptable to a wide variety of applications and requirements. The MGA++ project will develop an analysis capability based on an architecture consisting of a set of tools that can be configured by an executive to perform a specific task. The software will check the results or progress of an analysis and change assumptions and methodology as required to arrive at an optimum analysis. The software is intended to address analysis needs that arise from material control and accountability, treaty verification,more » complex reconfiguration and environmental clean-up applications.« less
