McStas: Vitess_output Component

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

The Vitess_output Component

Write neutron state parameters to VITESS neutron filename.


  • Author: Kristian Nielsen
  • Origin: Risoe/ILL
  • Date: June 6, 2000
  • Version:(Unknown)
  • Modification history:
    • E. Farhi, Sep 28th, 2001: added spin


Detector-like component writing neutron state parameters to a
VITESS neutron filename. Used to interface McStas components or
simulations into VITESS. Each neutron is 104 bytes.

Note that when standard output is used, as is the default, no
monitors or other components that produce terminal output must be
used, or the neutron output from this component will become

Example: Vitess_output(filename="MySource.vit", bufsize = 10000, progress = 1)

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

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
filename string Filename of neutron file to write. Default is standard output 0
bufsize records Size of neutron output buffer 10000
progress flag If not zero, output dots as progress indicator 0
