The Saphire_Filter Component

Saphire filter at 300K

Identification

Description


This saphire filter, defined by two identical rectangular opening apertures,
is based upon an absorption function absorp=exp(L*A+C*(exp(-(B/L^2+D/L^4))))
decribed by Freund (1983) Nucl. Instrum. Methods, A278, 379-401. The
defaultvalues is for Saphire at 300K as found by measurement by (Mildner &
Lamaze (1998) J. Appl. Cryst. 31,835-840
( http://journals.iucr.org/j/issues/1998/06/00/hw0070/hw0070bdy.html#BB4)). It
is possble to ajust the formular to other materials or temperatures by typing in
other parameters.
The transmission in saphire is only lightly demependt on temperature, but
The formular is only cheked at wavelenths between 0.5 and 14 AA (0.4 meV 0.3
eV).
The filter is for example used in the Eiger beamline at PSI to cut of high
energies.

WARNING: This is a contributed Component.
