Data Analysis


  • Data analysis is supported through user training which is provided at the AINSE Neutron Scattering Winter School ( and the ANSTO-Australian Synchrotron Powder Diffraction School.
  • Data analysis for Echidna can be carried out using any standard Rietveld analysis software, e.g. GSAS, Fullprof, Topas, Jana, Rietica, Rietan, etc. 


Data Correction and Reduction


Data correction and reduction is typically done by users or instrument scientists on the computer in the Echidna cabin. 


Data Access


The Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering promotes access to data collected during scientific experiments.


Access to data is available at ANSTO during the 3 year embargo period via the following options:

  1. Login to where you can search through your data and download as required.


If you are unable to login, contact the User Office


It is ANSTO policy that after a 3 year embargo period, data becomes publicly accessible. This can be viewed as "Public Experiments" at Metadata relating to the experimental data is copied to Research Data Australia In encouraging this practice ANSTO has helped many researchers forge new collaborations.
