McXtrace: Be_BM_beamline

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

The Be_BM_beamline Instrument

Be-lens Bending Magnet, Low Budget Monochromatic (pink) X-ray beamline


  • Site: DTU
  • Author: E. Knudsen (
  • Origin: Risø DTU
  • Date: Sept. 15th, 2009


This is a proof of concept beamline to test an idea of how to build a low-cost
monochromtic beamline. Idea is to let a polychromatic beam impinge on a focusing
Be-lens and put a slit in the focal pt. of the lens for the desired wavelength. Any
other wavelengths present in the beam will not be focussed prefectly and may be
by the slit.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
L1mDistance between source and lens10
L2mDistance between lens and and slit1
dSmSlit opening. Slit opening is quadratic.1e-2
N1NUmber of Lenses in the compund lens arrangement1
