McXtrace https://www.mcxtrace.org is a general Monte Carlo ray-tracing software for simulation X-ray beamlines and experiments. It benefits from the acquired experience gained from the McStas https://www.mcstas.org neutron code.
Compared to other X-ray modelling software (SRW, Shadow, XRT), McXtrace has been built in a modular way, allowing anybody to contribute with minimal involvement. Also, sample models are included (SAXS, MX, XRD, XAS, Tomography, and soon to come IXS). McXtrace can handle beam coherence, and runs on clusters and GPU’s.
We have modelled a set of source-to-detector beam-lines at Synchrotron SOLEIL
- ANATOMIX (tomography )
- DISCO (imaging, UV)
- MARS (powder diffraction, XRD)
- PX2a (protein crystallography, MX)
- ROCK (absorption spectroscopy, XAS)
- SWING (small angle, SAXS)
We shall present the work done in our group, with these BL, as well as contributed components for the package.
