In order to maximise the information extracted from SAS data, it is important to have a well characterized resolution function for the instrument and measurement conditions used. The combination of geometric (collimation, detection element size) and wavelength components in quadrature to produce a gaussian representation of the resolution at each Q value is well known, and widely used. However, there are a number of areas that have emerged where this representation does not adequately describe the measured data.
The Data Formats Working Group of canSAS is holding a workshop via video conference on the 25th and 26th March, 2021 to discuss SAXS/SANS resolution and in particular address the following points:
The workshop will address the questions by breaking them down into four areas:
