McStas: Monitor_Optimizer

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The Monitor_Optimizer Component

To be used after the Source_Optimizer component

Identification

Description

A component that optimizes the neutron flux passing through the
Source_Optimizer in order to have the maximum flux at the
Monitor_Optimizer position(s).
Source_optimizer should be placed just after the source.
Monitor_Optimizer should be placed at the position to optimize.
I prefer to put one just before the sample.

See Source_Optimizer for
usage example and additional informations.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
