_pd_instr_cons_illum_len

Name:
'_pd_instr_cons_illum_len'

Definition:

   Length of the specimen that is illuminated by the radiation
   source (in millimetres).

   Use _pd_instr_cons_illum_len for instruments where
   the illumination length does not vary with 2\q, by
   adjustment of the divergence slits (sometimes known
   as \q-compensated slits).
   Use _pd_instr_var_illum_len for instruments where
   the illuminated length of the specimen has been 
   characterized as a function of 2\q, most commonly true
   with a fixed divergence slit.


The permitted range is 0.0 -> infinity
