McStas: Virtual_tripoli4_output Component

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

The Virtual_tripoli4_output Component

Detector-like component that writes neutron state parameters into a 'virtual source' neutron file when neutrons come from the source : Virtual_tripoli4_input.comp



Detector-like component writing neutron state parameters to a
virtual source neutron file when neutron are coming from a
As McStas keeps the notion of batch with this component, it's possible
to calculate standard deviations for the flux in differents energy groupes.
The component geometry is the full plane, and saves the neutron state as
it exits from the previous component.
Format is the one used by TRIPOLI4.4 stock files :

  NEUTRON energy position_X position_Y position_Z dir_X dir_Y dir_Z weight

energy is in Mega eV
positions are in cm and the direction vector is normalized to 1.

This component will NOT work with parallel execution (MPI).

To create a file collecting all neutron states with TRIPOLI4 format
COMPONENT T4output = Virtual_tripoli4_output(
   filename = "exit_guide_result.dat",
   virtual_tripoli4_input_comp = source_file_tripoli )
 at the position where will be the Virtual_tripoli4_input.

WARNING: This is a contributed Component.
