McStas: E_monitor Component

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

The E_monitor Component

Energy-sensitive monitor.

Identification

  • Author: Kristian Nielsen and Kim Lefmann
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: April 20, 1998
  • Version: $Revision$

Description

A square single monitor that measures the energy of the incoming neutrons.

Example: E_monitor(xmin=-0.1, xmax=0.1, ymin=-0.1, ymax=0.1,
                Emin=1, Emax=50, nE=20, filename="Output.nrj")

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
nE 1 Number of energy channels 20
filename text Name of file in which to store the detector image 0
xmin m Lower x bound of detector opening -0.05
xmax m Upper x bound of detector opening 0.05
ymin m Lower y bound of detector opening -0.05
ymax m Upper y bound of detector opening 0.05
xwidth m Width of detector. Overrides xmin,xmax. 0
yheight m Height of detector. Overrides ymin,ymax. 0
Emin meV Minimum energy to detect  
Emax meV Maximum energy to detect  
restore_neutron 1 If set, the monitor does not influence the neutron state 0

Output parameters

Name Unit Description Default
E_N - Array of neutron counts  
E_p - Array of neutron weight counts  
E_p2 - Array of second moments  
S_p - Sum of neutron weight counts  
S_pE - Sum of weighted energies  
S_pE2 - Sum of weighted energy squared
