ScippNeutron builds on top of Scipp and provides features specific to handling and reducing data generated in neutron scattering facilities. A key example is “unit conversion”, e.g., from time-of-flight to energy transfer in an inelastic neutron scattering experiment at a spallation-based neutron source.


ScippNeutron is an open source project by the European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS). Other major contributions were provided by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).


ScippNeutron is available as open source under the BSD-3 license.
