Work Package 5 – Virtual Neutron and X-ray Laboratory (VINYL)
Work package 5 will develop the “Virtual Neutron and x-raY Laboratory” (ViNYL).
ViNYL will offer services for simulation and modelling of neutron and photon sources, beamlines and experimental instrument, as well as start-to-end simulations to describe entire experiments at photon and neutron facilities.
ViNYL will agglutinate in a PaNOSC-compatible e-infrastructure software packages based on developments made by the involved partners, such as OASYS, McSTAS and SIMEX.
Strategies for interoperability in a python-based environment and use standardized file formats have started. Software packages in use are under integration in the PaNdata software catalog.
The GitHub organization PaNOSC-ViNYL serves as the central hub for developments in WP5. It will collect forks of involved software projects and host the repositories for proper developments.
