This instrument allows to compare incoherent scattering from different McStas sample components.

Identification

Description

This instrument allows to compare incoherent scattering from different McStas
sample components:

* PowderN
Single_crystal
Isotropic_sqw
Incoherent

Examples:

Compare incoherent scattering from all sample comps, beamstop in place.

mcrun Samples_Incoherent -d Some_directory -N5 SAMPLE=1,5 STOP=1

Compare incoherent scattering and direct beam attenuation for PowderN, Single_crystal
and Isotroic_sqw:

mcrun Samples_Incoherent -d Some_other_directory -N4 SAMPLE=2,5 STOP=0

Have a closer look of direct beam attentuation for PowderN, Single_crystal
and Isotroic_sqw (has the side-effect that back-scattered neutrons are absorbed):

mcrun Samples_Incoherent -d Some_third_directory -N4 SAMPLE=2,5 STOP=0 DB=1

The sample type selection is:
  box:      1=Vanadium
            2=PowderN
            3=Single_Crystal
            4=Isotropic_Sqw
            5=Incoherent
           10=Isotropic_Sqw with V.lau
  cube.off: 6=PowderN,
            7=Single_Crystal
            8=Isotropic_Sqw
            9=Incoherent


Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
