Tools for analyzing X-ray absorbance spectroscopy data
Xanespy is a library for analyzing X-ray absorbance spectroscopy data for materials science, chemistry and similar fields. The major focus is on X-ray microscopy frames collected at multiple energies and over multiple timesteps. However, a design goal is for most (if not all) of the calculation routines to be applicable to bulk XAS data as well.
Motivation & Features
- Importing and analysis of transmission X-ray microscopy framesets
- Analysis of X-ray spectroscopy data (K-edge XANES and L-edge)
- Efficient analysis of large operando datasets
Xanespy can be installed from the python package index (PyPI) using pip
$ pip install xanespy
Each beamline generally has its own importer in the xanespy.importers module, which will process the data and create an HDF5 file ready for the rest of xanespy to use
import xanespy # Example for importing from SSRL 6-2c xanespy.import_ssrl_frameset('<data_dir>', hdf_filename='imported_data.h5') # Load a pre-defined XAS edge or create your own subclass xanespy.Edge edge = xanespy.k_edges['Ni_NCA'] # Now load the newly created HDF5 file and the X-ray absorbance edge fs = xanespy.XanesFrameset(filename='imported_data.h5', edge=edge) # Perform automatic frame alignment fs.align_frames(passes=5) # Fit the absorbance spectra and extract the edge position (SLOW!) fs.fit_spectra() # Inspect the result with the built-in Qt5 GUI fs.qt_viewer()
We currently have importers for data from the following beamlines. If you would like support a beamline that is not listed and are willing to share some test data publicly, please open an issue.
- 32-ID-C - Advanced Photon Source
- 8-BM-B - Advanced Photon Source
- 6-2c - Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource
- 184.108.40.206 - Advanced Light Source (ptychography)
Xanespy has support for ptychography data from ALS beamline 220.127.116.11. Use xanespy.import_nanosurveyor_frameset to import the .cxi files and xanespy.PtychoFrameset to load the data.
