Groups cited:

NXaperture, NXdeflector, NXlens_em, NXtransformations


scheme: (optional) NX_CHAR

Scheme of the electron collection lens, i.e. standard, deflector, PEEM, momentum microscope, etc.

extractor_voltage: (optional) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_VOLTAGE}

Voltage applied to the extractor lens

extractor_current: (optional) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_CURRENT}

Current necessary to keep the extractor lens at a set voltage. Variations indicate leakage, field emission or arc currents to the extractor lens.

working_distance: (optional) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_LENGTH}

Distance between sample and detector entrance

mode: (optional) NX_CHAR

Labelling of the lens setting in use.

projection: (optional) NX_CHAR

The space projected in the angularly dispersive directions, real or reciprocal

Any of these values: real | reciprocal

magnification: (optional) NX_FLOAT {units=NX_DIMENSIONLESS}

The magnification of the electron lens assembly.

depends_on: (optional) NX_CHAR

Specifies the position of the collectioncolumn by pointing to the last transformation in the transformation chain in the NXtransformations group.

TRANSFORMATIONS: (optional) NXtransformations

Collection of axis-based translations and rotations to describe the location and geometry of the deflector as a component in the instrument. Conventions from the NXtransformations base class are used. In principle, the McStas coordinate system is used. The first transformation has to point either to another component of the system or . (for pointing to the reference frame) to relate it relative to the experimental setup. Typically, the components of a system should all be related relative to each other and only one component should relate to the reference coordinate system.

APERTURE: (optional) NXaperture

The size and position of an aperture inserted in the column, e.g. field aperture or contrast aperture

DEFLECTOR: (optional) NXdeflector

Deflectors in the collection column section

LENS_EM: (optional) NXlens_em

Individual lenses in the collection column section
