Ray-tracing x-rays

The essential tool or engine for x-ray optics calculations is the ray-tracing program SHADOW, developed at Nanotech-Wisconsin (University of Wisconsin).

SHADOW is a general purpose ray tracing code specially designed for synchrotron radiation beamline optics. You may want to vistit the SHADOW WWW Home Page at NanoTech, where you can find instructions for download the code and information about the SHADOW's mailing list.

We have been working at ESRF with SHADOW for many years in close collaboration with NanoTech, and we have developed some extensions:
