McStas: Filter_graphite Component

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The Filter_graphite Component

Pyrolytic graphite filter (analytical model)


  • Author: Thomas C Hansen
  • Origin: ILL
  • Date: 07 March 2000
  • Version:(Unknown)
  • Modification history:
    • E. Farhi, uniformize parameter names (Jul 2008)


This rectangular pyrolytic graphite filter uses an analytical model
with linear interpolation on the neutron wavelength
This type of filter is e.g. used to supress higher harmonics, such as
the 1.2 AA contribution to the 2.4 AA obtained by a highly oriented
pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) monochromator.

Example: Filter_graphite(xmin=-.05, xmax=.05, ymin=-.05, ymax=.05, length=1.0)

WARNING: This is a contributed Component.
