McStas: Monitor_Optimizer Component

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

The Monitor_Optimizer Component

To be used after the Source_Optimizer component

Identification

  • Author: Emmanuel Farhi
  • Origin: ILL (France)
  • Date: 17 Sept 1999
  • Version: $Revision$
  • Modification history:
    • EF, (Feb 2000)
    • EF, Mar 10th, 2000 : now uses struct
    • EF, Oct 12th, 2000 ; optim divergence (0.08)

Description

A component that optimizes the neutron flux passing through the
Source_Optimizer in order to have the maximum flux at the
Monitor_Optimizer position(s).
Source_optimizer should be placed just after the source.
Monitor_Optimizer should be placed at the position to optimize.
I prefer to put one just before the sample.

See Source_Optimizer for
usage example and additional informations.
