Names:
'_pd_instr_slit_eq_src/mono' '_pd_instr_slit_eq_mono/spec' '_pd_instr_slit_eq_src/spec' '_pd_instr_slit_eq_spec/anal' '_pd_instr_slit_eq_anal/detc' '_pd_instr_slit_eq_spec/detc'

Definition:

   Describes collimation in the equatorial plane (the plane
   containing the incident and diffracted beams) for the
   instrument as a slit width (as opposed to a divergence angle).
   Values are the width of the slit (in millimetres) defining:
     *_src/mono, collimation between the radiation source
         and the monochromator;
     *_mono/spec, collimation between the monochromator and
         the specimen;
     *_src/spec, collimation between the radiation source
         and the specimen;
     *_spec/anal, collimation between the specimen and the
         analyser;
     *_anal/detc, collimation between the analyser and the
         detector;
     *_spec/detc, collimation between the specimen and the
         detector.

   Note that *_src/spec is used in place of *_src/mono and 
   *_mono/spec if there is no monochromator in use, and 
   *_spec/detc is used in place of *_spec/anal and 
   *_anal/detc if there is no analyser in use.
