base class, extends NXobject
An insertion device, as used in a synchrotron light source.
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.
type: (optional) NX_CHAR
Any of these values:
separation between opposing pairs of magnetic poles
angular of gap difference between upstream and downstream ends of the insertion device
number of poles
beam displacement parameter
length of insertion device
total power delivered by insertion device
energy of peak intensity in output spectrum
bandwidth of peak energy
harmonic number of peak
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.
spectrum: (optional) NXdata
spectrum of insertion device
GEOMETRY: (optional) NXgeometry
DEPRECATED: Use the field depends_on and NXtransformations to position the device and NXoff_geometry to describe its shape instead
“Engineering” position of insertion device
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.
