McXtrace: Slit Component

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

The Slit Component

Rectangular/circular slit


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


Based on Slit-comp by Kim Lefmann and Henrik Roennow
A simple rectangular or circular slit. You may either
specify the radius (circular shape), which takes precedence,
or the rectangular bounds.
No transmission around the slit is allowed.
If cutting option is used, low-weight x-rays are ABSORBED

Example: Slit(xmin=-0.01, xmax=0.01, ymin=-0.01, ymax=0.01)
         Slit(radius=0.01, cut=1e-10)

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
