Experimental data download

This is how you can download your data with sftp, on MAC and Linux. Also, it works on windows if you have OpenSSH enabled.

  1. Logon with  your-DUO-username@sftp.maxiv.lu.se. You need your mobile phone to autenticate.
  2. Go to the right directory with: cd /data/visitors/nanomax/ 20200527. (proposal number)
  3. List the directory with ls. You should see your session, e.g.: 2020032608.
  4. Create a suitable local directory with lmkdir, browse locally on your disk with lls, and navigate with lcd. type help for more commands.
  5. Fetch your data from the session with get -R 2020032608. This can be too large to download in one go, if you have large data sets. Then browse to sub-directories and download them one by one.

You can also setup a Globus downlowd service if you have very large data sets. Further information is found here.

Basic experimental data visualization

During experimental beamtime a Python progam named ScanViewer is used for rapid and versatile data visualization. After beamtime you can install and use the software at home. You find ScanViewer here.

Fluorescence image data analysis

We normally use the software PyMCA developed at ESRF for fluorescence imaging data analysis. Here is a video with basic instructions on how to open and fit NanoMAX XRF-data using PyMCA:
