ess.sans.normalization.compute_denominator(direct_beam, data_incident_monitor, transmission_fraction, solid_angle)

Compute the denominator term. Because we are histogramming the Q values of the denominator further down in the workflow, we convert the wavelength coordinate of the denominator from bin edges to bin centers.

  • direct_beam (DataArray) – The DataArray containing the direct beam function (depends on wavelength).

  • data_incident_monitor (DataArray) – The DataArray containing the incident monitor counts from the measurement run (depends on wavelength).

  • transmission_fraction (DataArray) – The DataArray containing the transmission fraction (depends on wavelength).

  • solid_angle (Variable) – The solid angle of the detector pixels (depends on detector position).
