McStas: SANSQMonitor Component

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

The SANSQMonitor Component

A circular detector measuring the radial average of intensity as a function of the momentum transform in the sample.


  • Author: Martin Cramer Pedersen (
  • Origin: KU-Science
  • Date: October 17, 2012
  • Version:(Unknown)


A simple component simulating the scattering from a box-shaped, thin solution
of monodisperse, spherical particles.

WARNING: This is a contributed Component.
