BornAgain takes neutron polarization into account if there is magnetism in the sample model or if a polarizer is set in the instrument model.
Sample magnetization is explained in Sample model > Materials > Magnetization.
Beam polarization is set through
polarizer_dir = R3(x, y, z) beam.setPolarization(polarizer_dir) # for scattering scan.setPolarization(polarizer_dir) # for specular and offspec
polarizer_dir is a Bloch vector, created by the constructor
If it is a unit vector, then the beam polarization is perfect. A shorter vector indicates imperfect polarization.
The analyzer properties are through
analyzer_dir = R3(x, y, z) detector.setAnalyzer(analyzer_dir, efficiency, transmission) # for scattering scan.setAnalyzer(analyzer_dir, efficiency, transmission) # for specular and offspec
The first argument is a unit vector that specifies the direction of the analyzer. The second argument is a number between 0 and 1 that specifies the analyzer efficiency. The third argument is a number between 0 and 0.5 that specifies the transmission of the analyzer for an unpolarized beam. The maximum value of $0.5$ corresponds to a perfect analyzer as half of an unpolarized incoming beam is not transmitted.
