Description

In the GUI, it is possible to set a nonzero analyzer efficiency
while the analyzer orientation is still (0,0,0). This is unphysical.

Should we enforce that the analyzer orientation be a unit vector?

The meaning of "efficieny" and "transmission" is not obvious and
unambiguous. Transmission of the good or the bad polarization??
If no better parameterization can be found, then at least provide
information in a tooltip.
