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

The Test_StatisticalChopper Instrument

An example using a statistical/correlation chopper and its de-correlation monitor



This instrument is a simple model of a kind of TOF instrument, with powder sample
and statistical chopper. The de-correlation is also performed in a dedicated monitor.

Example: lambda=1 Detector: time_mon2_I=6.03103e-13

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
Name Unit Description Default
lambda Angs source wavelength 1
