Dataset for Inversion of GISAXS data (3 layers)

Zhdanov, M.; Ganeva, M.; Randolph, L.; Kluge, T.; Hoffmann, N.


The dataset consists of 50000 X-ray diffraction patterns simulated by BornAgain [1] software. For each simulation, a multilayer sample model of the following structure was used: air, tantalum oxide, tantalum, copper nitride, silicon dioxide, and substrate. Parameters of air, silicon dioxide, and substrate were kept fixed. Hence, each diffraction pattern is set to depend on the parameters of tantalum oxide, tantalum, and copper nitride layers. For each layer, those are real and complex parts of refractive index, thickness, roughness, Hurst parameter, and correlation length. Each simulation output is stored in an h5py file consisting of 1) diffraction image as a NumPy array of shape [1200, 120]; 2) parameters of a sample as a NumPy array with 18 elements.
