Content

From the Geant4 web page: Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its areas of application include high energy, nuclear and accelerator physics, as well as studies in medical and space science.

In this online webinar, you will learn how to utilize the Geant4 toolkit in applications involving gamma radiation such as gamma radiation detector response calculations, radiation protection and safety & security applications.

The learning outcomes of the webinar are listed below.

  • Basics of Monte Carlo simulations for radiation transport.
  • Structure of a Monte Carlo program based on the Geant4 framework.
  • Defining the universe of the model, materials and geometry.
  • Visualise the geometrical model.
  • How to create gamma radiation and how to detect / measure it.
  • Visualise the transport of radiation through the model.
  • How to save results from the calculations.

The webinar will be held in English.
