application definition, extends NXobject


This is the application definition for S(Q,OM) processed data.

As this kind of data is in general not on a rectangular grid after data reduction, it is stored as Q,E positions plus their intensity, table like. It is the task of a possible visualisation program to regrid this data in a sensible way.
