The Guide_channeled Component

Neutron guide with channels (bender section).

Identification

Description

Models a rectangular guide tube centered on the Z axis. The entrance lies
in the X-Y plane.
The guide may be tapered, and may have vertical subdivisions (used for
bender devices).

There is a special rotating mode in order to approximate a Fermi Chopper
behaviour, in the case the neutron trajectory is nearly linear inside the
chopper slits, i.e. the neutrons are fast w/r/ to the chopper speed.
Slits are straight, but may be super-mirror coated. In this case, the
component is NOT centered, but located at its entry window. It should then
be shifted by -l/2.

Example: Guide_channeled(w1=0.1, h1=0.1, w2=0.1, h2=0.1, l=2.0,
 R0=0.99, Qcx=0.0219, Qcy=0.0219, alphax=6.07, alphay=6.07, W=0.003, nslit=1,
d=0.0005, mx=1, my=1)

%BUGS
This component does not work with gravitation on. Use Guide_gravity.
This component does not work in multichannel focusing geometry.

Example values: mx=4 my=2 Qcx=Qcy=0.0219 W=1/300 alphax=alphay=6.49 R0=1
