Phase 1 Simulation
To HETG at XRCF page, to Phase 1 simulations list
Status / To do
- Need to tweek nominal focus value to be better in focus.
- Detector QEs and Energy blurs may not be accurate.
Kludgy IDL code from dd.
CMDB to simulator
Routines made by Chris Baluta and John Davis at MIT are
used to "read" the CMDB and output .par files for the simulator.
The FPC mesh is indicated for 2 mm and larger pinholes. Note that
this mesh outline is in the detector plane and so not exactly accurate
(i.e., the PSF wil be different at the mesh plane than shown here.)
csim/MARX is the engine.
Output plots and CMDB list
A set of .gif files are created and put in directories. A master cmdb_list.html document is created and each measurement has its own .html page. This
is all done in IDL.
The s/w is currently installed and running at MIT, generally maintained
by Dan Dewey with the csim/MARX engine and CMDB to par files s/w
from John Davis and Chris Baluta.
