Focusing a Synchrotron BeamLine

A simulation version is provided for training showing the basic procedure to focusing the X-ray optics. It is provided to be used to simulate different parameters to optimize the wave-front correction.

The software

The BeamFocus Refactoring software is designed to assist the X-ray beam line scientist to focus the mirror of the optic system. This mirror can be a KB system (Kirkpatrick-Baez mirror set-up) or a Toroid.
