A Fery prism monochromator [15] is proposed for illustrating the simulation algorithm.
Whereas the CL discussed so far was exclusively examined as wavelength integral signal, either sets of bandpass filters or monochromators can be used to split the signal into wavelength ranges.
To construct sources of monochromatic radiation, it is necessary to use filters or monochromators and this reduces the intensity.
The monochromator assembly is based upon a carousel design with space for three individual monochromators.
