NAME

Physics::UEMColumn::Accelerator - Base class for acceleration regions in a UEM system

SYNOPSIS

 package Physics::UEMColumn::MyAccelerator;
 use Moose;
 extends 'Physics::UEMColumn::Accelerator';

DESCRIPTION

Physics::UEMColumn::Accelerator is a base class for acceleration regions in a UEM system. It is itself a subclass of Physics::UEMColumn::Element and inherits its attributes and methods. Additionally it provides:

ATTRIBUTES

location

Unlike Physics::UEMColumn::Element, accelerators' location defines the start of the region and defaults to a 0.

METHODS

field

Returns a field strength possibly derived from other attributes. In this base class it simply returns zero. This method is intended to be redefined on subclassing.

est_exit_vel

Returns an estimate of the velocity of the pulse on exiting the region. This in not likely to be exact. It is used in estimating the end time of the simulation. The base class' implementation returns zero and is intended to be subclassed.

est_exit_time

Returns an estimate of the time that the pulse on exits the region. This in not likely to be exact. It is used in estimating the end time of the simulation. The base class' implementation returns zero and is intended to be subclassed.
