McXtrace: Filter

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

The Filter Component

Block of an attenuating material

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Erik Knudsen
  • Origin: DTU Physics
  • Date: Jan 24, 2011

Description

A chunk of attenuating material. Attenuation is computed through
the effective length travelled within the material. No scattering is modelled at present.
The material may take the shape of a block, a cylinder, a sphere, or a general polygonalized
shape through an off/ply file.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
NameUnitDescriptionDefault
refraction If nonzero, refraction is enabled.1
fixed_delta Use a fixed delta to compute refraction - useful for debugging.0
delta Value for the fixed delta.0
material_datafilestringFile where the material parameters for the filter may be found. Format is similar to what may be found off the NISP website."Be.txt"
geometrystringFile (off/ply) containing the polygon definition of a general shape object.0
xwidthmWidth of block.0
yheightmHeight of block or cylinder.0
zdepthmThickness of block.0
radiusmRaidus of cylinder or sphere.0

Output parameters
