"GRASansP" is a MatlabTM script application designed for the graphical inspection, analysis and reduction of multi-detector data produced by the Small-Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) instruments of the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL). GRASansP deals with many of the diverse requirements for analysis and reduction of SANS data using a general set of tools and reduction algorithms. Data from the two ILL SANS instruments, D11 and D22, as well as SANS instruments at some other neutron sources, are currently catered for in the GRASansP package. In principle the architecture and coding of GRASansP combined with the matrix handling abilities, graphics and other advantages of the Matlab™ environment should allow continued development of this software and be able to provide more general aspects of multi-detector and complex data set handling. The drive for producing such a suite of software came from the overwhelming need for a modern, complete and general-purpose package to deal with typical procedures required for analysis of two-dimensional SANS multidetector data. By it’s very nature, two-dimensional data is often best appreciated in a graphical form. The birth of GRASansP came from the need for graphical inspection and ability to be able to quickly process and extract the scattered intensity, I(q), as a function of position on the multidetector (qx,qy) or as a function of sample environment conditions from a series of many measurement runs (e.g. temperature sweep, rocking curve etc.). This, combined with an interest in scientific software development and the abilities of the Matlab™ environment have brought GRASansP into it’s present state.
