WARNING: This is an experimental component - no experimental validation has yet been done Single magnetic crystal with mosaic. Delta-D/D option for finite-size effects. Multiple scattering and secondary extinction included. The mosaic may EITHER be specified isotropic by setting the mosaic input parameter, OR anisotropic by setting the mosaic_h, mosaic_v, and mosaic_n parameters. The scattering is computed solely in an spin up-down configuration. That is the scattering is considered in relation to the externally defined vector (mx,my,mz), where it can be either SF or NSF. Simplifications and comments : Lande splitting factor is assumed to be g=2 Magnetic form factors are set =1WARNING:Sample shape:Sample shape may be a cylinder, a sphere, a box or any other shape box/plate: xwidth x yheight x zdepth cylinder: radius x yheight sphere: radius (yheight=0) any shape: geometry=OFF file The complex geometry option handles any closed non-convex polyhedra. It computes the intersection points of the neutron ray with the object transparently, so that it can be used like a regular sample object. It supports the OFF and NOFF file format but not COFF (colored faces). Such files may be generated from XYZ data using qhull/powercrust, and viewed with geomview The default size of the object depends of the OFF file data, but its bounding box may be resized using xwidth,yheight and zdepth. Also, always use a non-zero value of delta_d_d.
