3.3.2.30. NXxkappa

Status:

application definition, extends NXxbase

Description:

raw data from a kappa geometry (CAD4) single crystal diffractometer, extends NXxbase

This is the application definition for raw data from a kappa geometry (CAD4) single crystal diffractometer. It extends NXxbase, so the full definition is the content of NXxbase plus the data defined here.
