McStas: Texture_process

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The Texture_process Component

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Victor Laliena
  • Origin:
  • Date: 27.10.18 (last version, 09.07.19)

Description

Part of the Union components, a set of components that work together and thus
seperates geometry and physics within McStas.
The use of this component requires other components to be used.

This component deals with the coherent elastic scattering on a textured material.
The texture is described through the coefficients of the generalized Fourier transform
of the Orientation Distribution Function (ODF).
The component expects as input two files, one containing the Fourier coefficients of the
ODF and another one with crystallographic and physical information.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
NameUnitDescriptionDefault
crystal_fnsPath to a file (.laz) containing crystallographic and physical information0
fcoef_fnsPath to a text file containing the Fourier coefficients of the ODF.0
lmax_user-1
barns1Flag to indicate if |F|^2 from 'reflections' is in barns or fm^2. barns=1 for laz and isotropic constant elastic scattering (reflections=NULL), barns=0 for lau type files0
order1Limit multiple scattering up to given order (0: all, 1: first, 2: second, ...)0
interact_fraction1How large a part of the scattering events should use this process 0-1 (sum of all processes in material = 1)-1
