Beam crossfire in degrees parallel to the laboratory Y axis (see AXIS category). This is a characteristic of the X-ray beam as it illuminates the sample (or specimen) after all monochromation and collimation. This is the standard uncertainty (e.s.d.) of the directions of photons in the YZ plane around the mean source beam direction. Note that for some synchrotrons this value is specified in milliradians, in which case a conversion is needed. To convert a value in milliradians to a value in degrees, multiply by 0.180 and divide by \p.
