3.3.1.14. NXdetector_moduleΒΆ

Status:

base class, extends NXobject, version 1.0

Description:

Geometry and logical description of a detector module.

Many detectors consist of multiple smaller modules. Sometimes it is important to know the exact position of such modules. This is the purpose of this group. It is a child group to NXdetector.

Symbols:

No symbol table

Structure:

data_origin: (optional) NX_INT

A two value field which gives the index of the start of the modules data in the main area detector image in the underlying NXdetector module.

data_size: (optional) NX_INT

Two values for the size of the module in pixels in each direction.

module_offset: (optional) NX_NUMBER {units=NX_LENGTH}

Offset of the module in regards to the origin of the detector in an arbitrary direction.

@transformation_type: (optional) NX_CHAR

Obligatory value: translation

@vector: (optional) NX_NUMBER

Three values that define the axis for this transformation

@offset: (optional) NX_NUMBER

A fixed offset applied before the transformation (three vector components).

@offset_units: (optional) NX_CHAR

Units of the offset.

@depends_on: (optional) NX_CHAR

Points to the path of the next element in the geometry chain.

fast_pixel_direction: (optional) NX_NUMBER {units=NX_LENGTH}

Values along the direction of fastest varying pixel direction.The direction itself is given through the vector attribute

@transformation_type: (optional) NX_CHAR

Obligatory value: translation

@vector: (optional) NX_NUMBER

Three values that define the axis for this transformation

@offset: (optional) NX_NUMBER

A fixed offset applied before the transformation (three vector components).

@offset_units: (optional) NX_CHAR

Units of the offset.

@depends_on: (optional) NX_CHAR

Points to the path of the next element in the geometry chain.

slow_pixel_direction: (optional) NX_NUMBER {units=NX_LENGTH}

Values along the direction of slow varying pixel direction. The direction itself is given through the vector attribute

@transformation_type: (optional) NX_CHAR

Obligatory value: translation

@vector: (optional) NX_NUMBER

Three values that define the axis for this transformation

@offset: (optional) NX_NUMBER

A fixed offset applied before the transformation (three vector components).

@offset_units: (optional) NX_CHAR

Units of the offset.

@depends_on: (optional) NX_CHAR

Points to the path of the next element in the geometry chain.
