WP77: The State of NeXus

P.F. Peterson (Spallation Neutron Source, Oak Ridge National Laboratory)

During the course of the last year, the NeXus data format for neutron and x-ray scattering has undergone several changes which improve usability and increase the number of applications available. The NeXus International Advisory Committee has been formed, with representation from eleven facilities around the world, including all the US neutron scattering facilities. This committee is charged with providing formal ratification for the instrument components, defined in XML. I will present recent changes to the abstract programmer's interface (API), enhanced data browsing and validation utilities, and a selection of software that is NeXus aware.
