Syntax

out = sw_converter(value, unitIn, unitOut)

out = sw_converter(value, unitIn, unitOut, particleName)

Description

out = sw_converter(value, unitin, unitout) will convert momentum and energy values assuming neutron as a particle.

out = sw_converter(value, unitin, unitout,particleName) will convert momentum and energy values for a given particle, such as neutron, photon, etc.

Example

Calculate the energy of a neutron (in meV) which has a wavelength of 5 Å:

sw_converter(5,'A','meV')

Output

    3.2722

Calculate the wavelength of X-ray in Å that has 7.5 keV energy:

sw_converter(7.5,'keV','A','photon')

Output

    1.6531
