Polarized neutrons experiments are the only technique allowing to
analyze individual contributions from nuclear-coherent, incoherent,
and magnetic components of neutron scattering cross-section necessary
to study, among others, properties of paramagnetic materials. This
work presents all stages of data reduction implemented in Mantid for
Institut Laue-Langevin's (ILL) D7 instrument, starting from wavelength
and position calibration to the final cross-sections in absolute
units. The new reduction workflow supports monochromatic and
single-crystal diffraction, as well as time-of-flight measurements,
using Z-only, 6-point, or 10-point component-separation methods. All
results are benchmarked against legacy ILL software.
