ready The CXI File Format for Coherent X-ray Imaging


General Information
The CXI file format was created as common format for all the data in the Coherent X-ray Imaging Data Bank (CXIDB). Naturally its scope is all experimental data collected during Coherent X-ray Imaging experiments as well as all data generated during the analysis of the experimental data.

Coherent X-ray Imaging Data Bank
The Coherent X-ray Imaging Data Bank (CXIDB) offers scientists from all over the world a unique opportunity to access data from Coherent X-ray Imaging (CXI) experiments. It arose from the need to share the terabytes of data generated from X-ray free-electron laser experiments although it caters to all light sources. Accessibility is crucial not only to make efficient use of experimental facilities, but also to improve the reproducibility of results and enable new research based on previous experiments.
