Transversely shifted distribution in temporal monitors
In temporal monitors the distribution is shifted in both transverse directions by half a centimeter.
There are more problems with monitors than initially thought.
The reference of a (infinitesimal thin) monitor is its center. This is handled correctly for monitors that are placed with
ELEMEDGEbut not with absolute coordinates.
- the path length stored in the h5 file isn't correct in case of "temporal" monitors
- the stored position of the bunch relative to the reference particle in case of "temporal" monitors is shifted
Some more information on this. If I set a monitor at a position where Opal also stores the phase space then the phase space of the temporal monitor should be the same. Furthermore the stored s-pos and the position of the reference particle in lab coordinates should be the same as the position of the monitor (in input file and data/_ElementPosition.txt).
For an example from bERLinPro I got
Position of monitor:
3D: (3.036208, 0, 9.772690)
Position of reference particle in temporal monitor:
3D: (3.0345, 1.16469e-14, 9.76799)
