As I’m slowly getting overwhelmed with admin (partly my own doing), the past two weeks did bring some good news:
Firstly, the Round Robin paper we have been working on has now been accepted for publication. It has been a long road, but the comments have improved the paper significantly, and I hope it will be enjoyed by all. The SI of this paper is also a thing to behold, containing the 45 anonymized datasets, details on the fitting and the resulting parameters, and two Jupyter notebooks for assessing the McSAS results automatically and for estimating the Q uncertainty. Here’s hoping the preprint will be available to you soon..
Secondly, beamtime for testing the USAXS instrument looks like it will be this winter, so I’ll be keeping you updated on the progress there. For that, I’m trying to get to grips with Tango controls, which appears to be sorely lacking in practical documentation.
We also had the first reviews coming in for the data corrections sequence paper, so that, too, is coming along nicely.
Besides this, there is a host of new stuff that is under development. At last count, my “running projects”-list was about 20 items long (my to-do list is much, much longer)! I do hope some of these will see the light soon, although everything always turns out to takes a little longer, and be a little more complicated than I thought!
