Setup & analyze data from ALS BL 4.0.2 diffractometer
ALS.Milo (version 0.16)
Milo is a suite of Python modules used to read, process, and analyze data that was collected on the Scattering Chamber located at Beamline 4.0.2 (a.k.a. BL402) of the Advanced Light Source (Berkeley, CA USA).
It is distributed under the namespace package, ALS.

Data from the BL402 Scattering Chamber is stored in two types of files:
FITS files: Each image captured by the CCD (a.k.a. the camera) is stored in a separate file using the FITS format. More details below. https://fits.gsfc.nasa.gov/fits_documentation.html
Scan summary files: When a scan sequence is run to collect data, a text file is created to summarize the parameters of the scan and the data collected.
Every scan summary file contains a header that describes the scan and the types of data recorded, followed by data rows -- one row per data point. An Instrument Scan provides an image filename in each data row that can be used to access the CCD images recorded during the scan.
class CcdImageFromFITS encapsulates the operations of loading CCD data
from a FITS file (including header information), accessing that data, and
converting CCD screen coordinates (pixels) into reciprocal space coordinates.
The following command can be used
to access the
CcdImageFromFITS class in the
from als.milo.qimage import CcdImageFromFITS
To read a FITS file use the constructor:
where filename is a reachable (relative or absolute) file path to the FITS file.
The two-dimensional array of data can be accessed through the instance member,
ccd_image = CcdImageFromFITS("NiFe_8044-00024.fits") ccd_image.data # 2D array with shape (num_rows, num_columns)
Reciprocal space coordinates are calculated for each pixel using the member
qvalues_df(). The return value is a PANDAS dataframe (df) where
each row corresponds to a single pixel. The columns
["Qx", "Qy", "Qz"] are
the diffractometer coordinates of the reciprocal space vector in units of
nm-1 (Q = 2π / d). Intensity of each pixel is in column,
ccd_image = CcdImageFromFITS("NiFe_8044-00024.fits") q_ccd_df = ccd_image.qvalues_df() q_ccd_df["Qx", "Qy", "Qz", "Counts"] # CCD data in reciprocal space
