McXtrace: Filter Component

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

The Filter Component

Block of an attenuating material


  • Author: Erik Knudsen
  • Origin: DTU Physics
  • Date: Jan 24, 2011
  • Version: $Revision$


A rectangular block of attenuating material. Attenuation is computed through
the effective length travelled within the material. No scattering is modelled at present.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
refraction If nonzero, refraction is enabled. 1
fixed_delta Use a fixed delta to compute refraction - useful for debugging. 0
material_datafile Be.txt Dile where the material parameters for the filter may be found. Format is similar to what may be found off the NISP website. "Be.txt"
geometry File (off/ply) containing the polygon definition of a general shape object. 0
xwidth m Width of block.  
yheight m Height of block.  
zdepth m Thickness of block.  

Output parameters
