Cartoons of monochromator movements 

These animations are cartoons of the motions of diffracting crystals (or multilayers) as a function of photon energy of three common hard x-ray monochromator types, namely double crystal monos (DCMs, and double multilayer monos DMMs), channel-cut monos (CMMs), and four-bounce monos (4BMs). The matlab code is for the 4BM movements; adaptation to the other mono types is fairly trivial.
