LAMPSQw

Readers for dynamic data

class MDMC.readers.observables.LAMPSQw.LAMPSQw(file_name)[source]

A class for reading SQw files from LAMP

LAMP’s ascii output uses three files: 1 for independent variables and parameters (…_LAMP), another for dependent variables (…_LAMPascii), and a third for the errors in the dependent variables (…LAMPascii_e)

file_indep

File containing the independent variables

Type

file

file_dep

File containing the dependent variables

Type

file

file_dep_err

File containing the errors on the dependent variables

parse(**settings)[source]

Parse into SQw format

E is the energy transfer (in meV) Q is wavevector transfer (in Ang^-1)

parse_dep_var(file)[source]

Parses the dependent variables or their errors.

Parameters

file (file) – Open file containing independent data

Returns

A 2d array with dimensions of the two independent variables

Return type

numpy.ndarray

parse_indep_var(file)[source]

Parses the independent variables

Splits the file so that the data can be extracted into a array by self._get_data

Parameters

file (file) – Open file containing independent data

Returns

(X, Y) where X and Y are arrays of the two independent variables

Return type

tuple
