USANS Publications List
If you have written a paper that reports measurements using the USANS Instrument and you do not see it in the list below, or if the paper is listed but the information is incorrect or out of date, please inform Jeff Krzywon and/or John Barker.
If you write a paper that reports measurements using the USANS, please be sure to
(a) include an acknowledgement to the NSF, and to NIST if there are no NIST coauthors,and
(b) include a reference to the following recent paper describing the USANS Instrument: "Design and performance of a thermal-neutron double-crystal diffractometer for USANS at NIST", Barker JG, et al. J Appl. Cryst. 38(6), 1004 (2005). Thanks!
If you reduced your data using the Igor Macros, please include the following reference:
"Reduction and Analysis of SANS and USANS Data using Igor Pro", Kline, S. R. J Appl. Cryst. 39(6), 895 (2006).
Please be aware that all papers with NIST coauthors must be reviewed and approved by the Washington Editorial Review Board (WERB). Members of WERB are concerned not only with scientific merit but with three specific matters: measurement uncertainties, the use of SI units, and brand names. For more detailed information please click here and/or speak with your NIST coauthor(s).
