USANS Instrument Publications

If you have written a paper that reports measurements using this instrument and you do not see it in the list below, or if the paper is listed but the information is incorrect or out of date, please inform Jeff Krzywon and/or Paul Butler.

If you write a paper or give a presentation that reports measurements using the USANS Instrument, please be sure to:

  1. include a reference to the 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).

If you reduced and/or analyzed your data using the Igor Macros, please include the reference ""Reduction and Analysis of SANS and USANS Data using Igor Pro", Kline, S. R. J Appl. Cryst. 39(6), 895 (2006).

If you analyzed your data using the SasView application, please follow the guidance outlined on the "SasView publications site.

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 visit WERB and/or speak with your NIST coauthor(s).
