Scattering Databases

In this folder a list of already computed scattering databases is provided.

We strongly encourage the member of the scientific community to sign-up and contribute to this list.

We also advocate for the use of common standards in scattering computations and for the free and open-source availability of scattering databases.

 

Dr. Jani Tyynelä presented an in-depth review of the current state (June 2017) of scattering databases at the first International Summer Workshop on Snofall Scattering (Cologne). You can download his presentation slides HERE
