McXtrace: Airp_scannerII

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

The Airp_scannerII Instrument

Example instrument to display how to use the absorption multiobject component


  • Site: DTU
  • Author: E. B. Knudsen (
  • Origin: DTU Physics
  • Date: Jan '21


This instrument simply has a lab source, a few monitors and a multi-off object scene
by means of the Abs_objects component. BY sullpiying a control fiel and a set of
off/ply-files a scene is put together which may be used for tomography style
simulations. The default input file contains a single object: a mechanical socket.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
SFILE Name of file that contains the off/ply parameters for the scene"input_abs_objects_template.dat"
ANGLE Rotation around y-axis0
posXmDisplacement of scene along x-axis0
posYmDisplacement of scene along y-axis0
posZmDisplacement of scene along z-axis0
