McStas: TOF2E_monitor Component

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

The TOF2E_monitor Component

TOF-sensitive monitor, converting to energy


  • Author: Kim Lefmann and Helmuth Schoeber
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: Sept. 13, 2006
  • Version: $Revision$


A square single monitor that measures the energy of the incoming neutrons
from their time-of-flight

Example: TOF2E_monitor(xmin=-0.1, xmax=0.1, ymin=-0.1, ymax=0.1,
                Emin=1, Emax=50, nE=20, filename="Output.nrj",
                L_flight=20, T_zero=0)

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  
T_zero s Zero point in time  
L_flight m flight length user in conversion  
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
