The spacing between the centers of the bins is made to coincide with the spinning frequency by choosing the dwell time equal to the 1/128-th of the rotor period, which makes the spectral width equal to 128 spinning frequencies. With this choice, each sideband, although broadened by the the 2nd-order quadruplar interaction, is collected in just one bin. The total intensity collected in that bin (i.e. the intensity of the point in the spectrum on the output) then reflects the total sideband intensity over all orientations in the powder. -- Since the 2nd-order quadruplar interactions (although present in the Hamiltonian) do not affect the total intensities of the sidebands, exactly the same spectrum can be obtained with the -quad1 option. -- The -ws option is specified to disable the interpolation of the spectal frequencies (as functions of the orientation), which is useless in this case since the frequencies are made orientation-independent by the way they are binned. Enabling interpolation would produce the same result, but it would take longer to compute. -- This kind of input file is easily remade into a sideband fitting task (see csa-sb-fitting example).
