McXtrace: Lens_simple Component

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

The Lens_simple Component

Simple refractive x-ray lens

Identification

  • Author: Erik Knudsen
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: June 16, 2009
  • Version: 1.0

Description

Models a stack of N refractive lenses, with a radius of curvature, r, at the apex.
The model is a thin-lens approximation where photons are refracted in a the XY plane
at Z=0. Absorption is generally disregarded may be handled through the use of the optional
transmission parameter T, where 0<=T<=1.
Thus, the lens has the focal length of f=R/(2*N*&delta) where the x-ray refractive
index is written: n = 1 - &delta + i &beta.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
xwidth m Width of lens aperture. 0
yheight m Height of lens aperture. 0
radius m Radius of lens aperture (overrides xwidth & yheight). 1e-3
T Transmission efficiency of the lens. 1
r The radius of curvature of the lens. 0
N The number of successive lenses in the stack. 1
verbose Extra information for debugging. 0
f m Focal length - overrides the material_datafile - and diregards chromatic aberration. 1
material_datafile File where the material parameters for the lens may be found. Format is similar to what may be found off the NISP website. "Be.txt"
