A divergence sensitive monitor. The counts are distributed in
n pixels.

Example: Hdiv_monitor(xmin=-0.1, xmax=0.1, ymin=-0.1, ymax=0.1,
          nh=20, filename="Output.hd", h_maxdiv=2)

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
nh 1 Number of pixel rows 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
h_maxdiv degrees Maximal vertical divergence detected 2
restore_neutron 1 If set, the monitor does not influence the neutron state 0

Output parameters

Name Unit Description Default
Div_N - Array of neutron counts  
Div_p - Array of neutron weight counts  
Div_p2 - Array of second moments
