McStas: Set_pol Component

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

The Set_pol Component

(Unphysical) way of setting the polarization.

Identification

  • Author: Peter Christiansen
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: August 2006
  • Version:(Unknown)

Description


This component has no physical size (like Arm - also drawn that
way), but is used to set the polarisation in one of two ways:
1) (randomOn=0) Hardcode the polarisation to the vector (px, py, pz)
2) (randomOn!=0) Set the polarisation to a random vector on the unit sphere

Example: Set_pol(px=0, py=-1, pz=0)

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
px can be negative [1] X-component of polarisation vector 0
py can be negative [1] Y-component of polarisation vector 0
pz can be negative [1] Z-component of polarisation vector 0
randomOn 1 Generate random values if randomOn!=0. 0
