    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    McStas is a project to develop general tools for the creation of simulations of neutron scattering experiments. In this paper, we briefly introduce McStas and describe a particular application of the program: the Monte Carlo calculation of the resolution function of a standard triple-axis neutron scattering instrument. The method compares well with the analytical calculations of Popovici. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
