application definition, extends NXxbase


raw data from a single crystal diffractometer, extends NXxbase

This is the application definition for raw data from a single crystal diffractometer measuring in normal beam mode. It extends NXxbase, so the full definition is the content of NXxbase plus the data defined here. All angles are logged in order to support arbitrary scans in reciprocal space.
