McStas: PhononSimple_process

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The PhononSimple_process Component

Port of PhononSimple to Union components

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Anders Komar Ravn, based on template by Mads Bertelsen and Phonon_Simple
  • Origin: University of Copenhagen
  • Date: 20.08.15

Description

Port of the PhononSimple component from the McStas library to the Union
components.

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

1) One specifies a number of processes using process components like this one
2) These are gathered into material definitions using Union_make_material
3) Geometries are placed using Union_box / Union_cylinder, assigned a material
4) A Union_master component placed after all of the above

Only in step 4 will any simulation happen, and per default all geometries
defined before the master, but after the previous will be simulated here.

There is a dedicated manual available for the Union_components
