McStas: PSD_monitor_TOF Component

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

The PSD_monitor_TOF Component

Position-sensitive monitor with a TOF signal pr. bin.


  • Author: Peter Willendrup, derived from PSD_monitor by Kim Lefmann
  • Origin: Risoe
  • Date: Feb 3, 1998
  • Version:(Unknown)


An (nx times ny) pixel PSD monitor with nt time bins pr pixel.

Will output 1 integrated PSD images plus an nt time bin TOF signal pr pixel.

Example: PSD_monitor_TOF(xmin=-0.1, xmax=0.1, ymin=-0.1, ymax=0.1, nx=90, ny=90, tmin=4000, tmax=7000, nt=1000, filename="Output")

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
nx 1 Number of pixel columns 90
ny 1 Number of pixel rows 90
nt 1 Number of TOF bins 10
restore_neutron 1 If set, the monitor does not influence the neutron state 0

xmin m Lower x bound of detector opening 0
xmax m Upper x bound of detector opening 0
ymin m Lower y bound of detector opening 0
ymax m Upper y bound of detector opening 0
xwidth m Width/diameter of detector (x). Overrides xmin, xmax 0
yheight m Height of detector (y). Overrides ymin, ymax 0
tmin mu-s Lower time bound 0
tmax mu-s Upper time bound 0
