Purpose

Handles input, output and interpolation of detector efficiency tables.

Parameters

item
For the input options (read and import()) specifies a list of files, optionally wildcarded or including shell variables, to be read as efficiency tables. Usually energy loss tables have the extension ".eff"
For all other options: name of the material for which the efficiency is to be processed. A "*" means all types, a list of types has to be put in double quotes.
import()
Not yet implemented.
export(fmt)
Exports an efficiency table in some non-native format, at present only gd is implemented to export for the gd plot program.
File name convention is:
<prefix><item>.eff.gd
read
Read an efficiency table specified by item.
write
Write the efficiency table for material item
File name convention is:
<prefix><item>.eff
prefix()
Prefix for output (write,export()) file names.
list
List the efficiency table for material item
delete
Delete the efficiency table for material item
display
Display the efficiency table for material item. Not yet implemented.
inspect
Show some internal info about the efficiency table for material item.
energy(energy)
When specified together with projectile() the efficiency for the specified beam energy (MeV/u) will be interpolated from the table for material item.
projectile(proj)
When specified together with energy() the efficiency for the specified projectile will be interpolated from the table for material item.
debug
Debug switch. Lots of output !

Remark

In TRiP98 the term efficiency of detectors has a special meaning. Please consult the section on detectors and efficiencies

Examples

  1. eff $TRIP98/DATA/film.eff /read
    
    Reads the specified file in the directory "$TRIP98/DATA" and interpretes it as an efficiency table.
  2. eff TLD-700 /proj(10B) energy(270) 
    
    For the projectile 10B of 270 MeV/u the efficiency of TLD-700 is interpolated.
