Daiquiri(1) is a web-based interface (UI) framework for control, monitoring and data acquisition. At ID21 we use Daiquiri to acquire multiple XRF maps, XANES and stacks of XRF maps at multiple energies. The use of Daiquiri aims to simplify data acquisition and ease live visualization of the results for an efficient and interative beamtime.

Here an introduction on how to use Daiquiri at ID21



PyMCA(2) started as a program for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis developed here at the ESRF. Today, PyMCA is not only a user-friendly software but also the workhorse behind many analytical workflows including now, XRF, XANES, EXAFS and tomography. For XRF the program allows interactive as well as batch processing of datasets and accepts most of the file extensions used by the community. The software is free for download here.

Following a short tutorial on the use of PyMCA to analyze data from ID21
