Tomographic data files

For a repository of experimental and simulated data sets using the the Data Exchange file format (DXfile) [B5], please check TomoBank [B3].

For reading tomography files formatted in different ways, please go check the DXchange package. There are various examples and demonstration scripts about how to load your datasets.

Area Detector

At synchrotron facilities using the EPICS [B1] software for area detectors [B12] with the NDFileHDF5 plugin [B11], is possible to directly save DXfile by properly configure the detector and the HDF schema attribute files. Below are examples on how this has been implemented at various facilities.


This section contains python code examples on how to generate and access the meta-data of a DXfile.
