Category DIFFRN_DETECTOR_ELEMENT

Name:
'diffrn_detector_element'

Description:

   Data items in the DIFFRN_DETECTOR_ELEMENT category record
   the details about spatial layout and other characteristics
   of each element of a detector which may have multiple elements.

   In most cases, giving more detailed information
   in ARRAY_STRUCTURE_LIST and ARRAY_STRUCTURE_LIST_AXIS
   is preferable to simply providing the centre of the 
   detector element.

Example:

Example 1 - Detector d1 is composed of four CCD detector elements, each 200 mm by 200 mm, arranged in a square, in the pattern 1 2 * 3 4 Note that the beam centre is slightly displaced from each of the detector elements, just beyond the lower right corner of 1, the lower left corner of 2, the upper right corner of 3 and the upper left corner of 4.
