McStas: PolTOF_monitor

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The PolTOF_monitor Component

Polarisation and time of flight sensitive monitor.

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Erik B Knudsen
  • Origin: DTU Physics
  • Date: Apr 2021

Description

A square single monitor that measures the projection of the
polarisation along a given normalized m-vector (mx, my, mz) as a
function of time of flight.

Example: PolTOF_monitor(tmin=1e-3, tmax=2e-3, nt=20, xwidth=0.1, yheight=0.1, npol=11, mx=0, my=1, mz=0, filename="polTOFMon.data")

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
