base class, extends NXobject
A Fermi chopper, possibly with curved slits.
No symbol table
@default: (optional) NX_CHAR
Declares which child group contains a path leading to a NXdata group.
It is recommended (as of NIAC2014) to use this attribute to help define the path to the default dataset to be plotted. See https://www.nexusformat.org/2014_How_to_find_default_data.html for a summary of the discussion.

distance. Note, it is recommended to use NXtransformations instead.

depends_on: (optional) NX_CHAR
NeXus positions components by applying a set of translations and rotations to apply to the component starting from 0, 0, 0. The order of these operations is critical and forms what NeXus calls a dependency chain. The depends_on field defines the path to the top most operation of the dependency chain or the string “.” if located in the origin. Usually these operations are stored in a NXtransformations group. But NeXus allows them to be stored anywhere.
GEOMETRY: (optional) NXgeometry
DEPRECATED: Use the field depends_on and NXtransformations to position the chopper and NXoff_geometry to describe its shape instead
geometry of the fermi chopper
OFF_GEOMETRY: (optional) NXoff_geometry
This group describes the shape of the beam line component
TRANSFORMATIONS: (optional) NXtransformations
This is the group recommended for holding the chain of translation and rotation operations necessary to position the component within the instrument. The dependency chain may however traverse similar groups in other component groups.
