Theoretical detector windows
« on: July 09, 2019, 03:07:00 pm »
I want to simulate spectra collected with theoretical detector windows. I have a text file of transmission percentage at different energies but I don't know how to use this in DTSA II. This reply is the closest information I could find.

I'm trying to figure a good way to do this...
There are calculated windows and combined tabulated/calculated windows.  The tabulated portions are added from a CSV file.  Maybe if the user adds a custom CSV file to the install directory, it could be used to define a custom window.

Windows may be only part of the problem as ionization cross sections and relaxation rates are poorly known for L & M lines.  Could just be bad physics in the model.


Could you elaborate on how to add a custom CSV file to define a custom window?
