Musrfit: a free platform-independent framework for μSR data analysis


Suter, A; Wojek, B M (2012). Musrfit: a free platform-independent framework for μSR data analysis. Physics Procedia, 30:69-73.

Abstract

A free data-analysis framework for muSR has been developed. musrfit is fully written in C++, is running under GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, as well as Microsoft Windows, and is distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL. It is based on the CERN ROOT framework and is utilizing the Minuit optimization routines for fitting. It consists of a set of programs allowing the user to analyze and visualize the data. The fitting process is controlled by an ascii-input file with an extended syntax. A dedicated text editor is helping the user to create and handle these files in an efficient way, execute the fitting, show the data, get online help, and so on. A versatile tool for the generation of new input files and the extraction of fit parameters is provided as well. musrfit facilitates a plugin mechanism allowing to invoke user-defined functions. Hence, the functionality of the framework can be extended with a minimal amount of overhead for the user. Currently, musrfit can read the following facility raw-data files: PSI-BIN, MDU (PSI), ROOT (LEM/PSI), WKM (outdated ascii format), MUD (TRIUMF), NeXus (ISIS).
