McStas: Rotator Component

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

The Rotator Component

A rotative frame along vertical axis


  • Author: Emmanuel Farhi
  • Origin: ILL
  • Date: June 20th 2013
  • Version:(Unknown)


All components positioned after this one are rotating at frequency 'nu' with
phase 'phase'. Use the Derotator component to put back the model steady.
The rotation is performed w.r.t. the position of the component, along the
vertical axis 'y'.

  R=Rotator(nu=14, phase=0)
  AT (0,0,0) RELATIVE R

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
nu vertical axis [Hz] Rotation frequency (round/s) in the rotating option 0
phase deg Phase shift 0

Output parameters

Name Unit Description Default
angle deg rotation angle
