McXtrace: Mirror_parabolic Component

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

The Mirror_parabolic Component

Idealized parabolic mirror

Identification

  • Author: Erik Knudsen
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: Feb 11, 2010
  • Version: $Revision$

Description

Takes a reflectivity (default=1) as input and reflects rays in a ideal geometry
parabolic mirror. The mirror is positioned in the zx-plane curving towards positive y.
I.e. the focal point is (0,0,f(a,b))
Parabola is y = z^2 / a^2 + x^2 / b^2
the focal length for the 'z' curve is f=a^2 / 4

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
R 1 reflectivity of mirror. 1
a sqrt(m) (z) primary axis curvature scale 1
b sqrt(m) (x) curvature scale, if zero, flat in x. 1
xmin -width/2.0 [m] lower bound of mirror in x -1
xmax width/2.0 [m] upper bound of mirror in x 1
ymin -height/2.0 [m] lower bound of mirror in y 0
ymax height/2.0 [m] upper bound of mirror in y 1
zmin -depth/2.0 [m] lower bound of mirror in z -1
zmax depth/2.0 [m] upper bound of mirror in z 1
