AMOR in Single Counter Mode

In this mode the chopper is off. The first task is to adjust diaphragms and monochromators in such a way that the neutron beam hits the sample and afterwards finds its way into the detector. Then scans can be peformed with the normal scan commands. Most often scans will be performed varying two theta. Now, two theta is varied through a complicated, coordinated movement of angles and distances at AMOR. For this to work properly a lot of parameters have to be entered manualy. See, the documentation for a2t for details. Scan results are stored in NeXus files. Do not forget to set those SICS variables which need to be written to the data file as described in the data storage section.
