McStas: PSI_DMC Instrument at PSI

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

The PSI_DMC Instrument

McStas model of the DMC powder diffractometer at PSI, CH.

Identification

  • Origin:PSI
  • Date: May 7th, 2008
  • Version: $Revision$

Description

McStas model of the DMC powder diffractometer at PSI, CH.

Please note that this instrument file does not include the radial collimator of DMC. 
To generate the full 800-bin angle coverage at DMC, you should combine two simulations
using this instrumentfile, with SHIFT=0 and 0.1. This will displace the detector by half
a bin-width, which is a standard procedure at the DMC diffractometer


Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
lambda AA Choice of wavelength, affects both monochromator and source component 2.5666
R 1 Reflectivity of non-curved guides 0.87
R_curve 1 Reflectivity of curved guides 0.87
filename str Choice of reflection list file, e.g. from McStas data dir "Na2Ca3Al2F14.laz"
D_PHI deg Focusing 'd_phi' for PowderN, see mcdoc page 6
SHIFT deg Rotation of detector, set to 0.1 to displace by half a bin 0
PACK 1 Powder packing factor 0.7
Dw 1 Powder Debye-Waller factor 0.8
BARNS 1 Flag to define if powder reflection file |F2| is in Barns or fm 1
