The Test_Fermi Instrument

Cross comparison of Fermi Chopper components

Identification

Description

Cross comparison of Fermi Chopper components, using McStas and
contributed components, as well as rotating collimator approximations. It
shows that all implementations are equivalent. However, approximating rotating
guide are 30% faster than McStas Fermi chopper, and on the other hand
Vitess implementation is 100 times slower.


Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
