McStas: StatisticalChopper_Monitor

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The StatisticalChopper_Monitor Component

Monitor designed to compute the autocorrelation signal for the Statistical Chopper

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: C. Monzat/E. Farhi
  • Origin: ILL
  • Date: 2009

Description

This component is a time sensitive monitor which calculates the cross
correlation between the pseudo random sequence of a statistical chopper
and the signal received. It mainly uses fonctions of component Monitor_nD.
It is possible to use the various options of the Monitor_nD but the user MUST NOT
specify "time" in the options. Auto detection of the time limits is possible if the
user chooses tmin=>tmax.

StatisticalChopper_Monitor(options ="banana bins=500, abs theta limits=[5,105],bins=1000")
