CS software

The Computing for Science (CS) group supports ILL scientists, students and visitors in a number of activities including data analysis, instrument simulation and sample simulation.

Software developed in the CS group

We have worked on many programs for the ILL users over the years.Many of these are available in our customized Ubuntu ILL-CS LiveDVD.
