The Detector_pn Component

Block of a attenuating material

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Maria Thomsen (mariath@fys.ku.dk)
  • Origin: NBI, KU
  • Date: Jan 24, 2011

Description

A scintillator detector model taking photoabsorption efficiency into account. As such it consitututes a
more physical version of the PSD_monitor. Only direct absorption is taken into account.

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
NameUnitDescriptionDefault
nx Number of pixel columns.90
ny Number of pixel rows.90
filenamestringName of file in which to store the detector image.0
restore_xray If set, the monitor does not influence the xray state.0
material_datafilestringfile where the material parameters for the scintillator may be found. Format is similar to what may be found off the NISP website."Be.txt"
xwidthmWidth of detection area.
yheightmHeight of detection area.
zdepthmThickness of scintillator.
abs_column Column in the material datafile which contains the linear absorption coefficient.1

Output parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
NameUnitDescriptionDefault
A_t
rho
Z
PSD_NArray of xray counts
PSD_pArray of xray weight counts
PSD_p2Array of second moments
