Models a rectangular tapered guide (many shapes)

Name  Unit  Description  Default 

option  str  define the input function for the curve of the guide walls options are: "elliptical"  define elliptical function of guide walls "parabolical"  define parabolical function of guide walls "straight"  define a straight elements guide"file=[filename]"  read in ASCfile with arbitrary definition for the curve of the guide walls  0 
w1  m  Width at the guide entry  0 
h1  m  Height at the guide entry  0 
l  m  length of guide  
linw  m  distance from 1st focal point to real guide entry  left and right horizontal mirrors  0 
loutw  m  distance from real guide exit to 2nd focal point  left and right horizontal mirrors  0 
linh  m  distance from 1st focal point to real guide entry  top and bottom vertical mirrors  0 
louth  m  distance from real guide exit to 2nd focal point  top and bottom vertical mirrors  0 
R0  1  Lowangle reflectivity  0.99 
Qcx  AA1  Critical scattering vector for left and right vertical mirrors in each channel  0.021 
Qcy  AA1  Critical scattering vector for top and bottom mirrors  0.021 
alphax  AA  Slope of reflectivity for left and right vertical mirrors in each channel  6.07 
alphay  AA  Slope of reflectivity for top and bottom mirrors  6.07 
W  AA1  Width of supermirror cutoff for all mirrors  0.003 
mx  1  mvalue of material for left and right vertical mirrors in each channel. Zero means completely absorbing. Negative value will adapt coating as e.g. m=mx*w1/w  1 
my  1  mvalue of material for top and bottom mirrors. Zero means completely absorbing. Negative value will adapt coating as e.g. m=my*h1/h  1 
segno  1  number of segments (zaxis) for cutting the tube  800
