McXtrace: Source_div Component

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

The Source_div Component

X-ray source with Gaussian or uniform divergence

Identification

  • Author: Erik Knudsen
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: November 11, 2009
  • Version: $Revision$

Description

A flat rectangular surface source with uniform or Gaussian divergence profile and focussing.
If the parametere gauss is not set (the default) the divergence profile is flat
in the range [-focus_ax,focus_ay]. If gauss is set, the focux_ax,focus_ay is considered
the standard deviation of the gaussian profile.
Currently focussing is only active for flat profile. The "focus window" is defined by focus_xw,focus_yh and dist.
The spectral intensity profile is uniformly distributed in the energy interval defined by e0+-dE/2 or 
by wavelength lambda0+-dlambda/2

Example: Source_div(xwidth=0.1, yheight=0.1, focus_aw=2, focus_ah=2, E0=14, dE=2, gauss=0)

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
spectrum_file NULL
xwidth m Width of source.  
yheight m Height of source.  
focus_aw rd Standard deviation (Gaussian) or maximal (uniform) horz. width divergence.  
focus_ah rd Standard deviation (Gaussian) or maximal (uniform) vert. height divergence.  
E0 keV Mean energy of X-rays. 0
dE keV Energy half spread of X-rays. If gauss==0 dE is the half-spread, i.e. E\in[E0-dE,E0+dE], if gauss!=0 it's interpreted as the standard dev. 0
lambda0 AA Mean wavelength of X-rays (only relevant for E0=0). 0
dlambda AA Wavelength half spread of X-rays. 0
flux 1/(s * mm**2 *mrad**2 * energy unit ) flux per energy unit, Angs or keV. 0
gauss 1 Criterion: 0: uniform, 1: Gaussian distribution of energy/wavelength. 0
gauss_a 1 Criterion: 0: uniform, 1: Gaussian divergence distribution. 0
randomphase 1 If !=0 the photon phase is chosen randomly. 1
phase 1 Value of the photon phase (if randomphase==0). 0
