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

The ESS_2015_test Instrument

Test of the ESS-2015 moderator model with updated component ESS_moderator.comp .


  • Site: ESS
  • Author: Jan Saroun (
  • Origin: NPI Rez
  • Date: 04/01/2016
  • Version:(Unknown)


Measures flux projected on a 1cm^2 target at 100 m,
The beamline origin is centered at the nearest cross point between cold and thermal moderators.
Accepts negative port angle. Default is -55 deg corresponding to the assumed BEER position (port 2).
Records spatial and time distributions at 0.3 m from the beamline origin and wavelength distribution
behind the target slit.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
frac 0.5
lmin A wavelength range min 0.3
lmax A wavelength range max 8.3
ANGLE deg port angle -55
mon_shift m shift of the monitor along x-axis 0.0
