15 September 1999 Optical Monte Carlo transport in scintillators
Author Affiliations +
To facilitate the design and characterization of scintillation detectors we are implementing a new Monte Carlo code. The code handles the transport of optical photons through plastic scintillators, and is being written to ensure accurate interaction of photons at surfaces and to allow an analysis of photon arrival times at the detector entrance window. The code is being written in C++ with the long term view of forming an extension to the EGS4/51 code system. This paper will discuss the implementation of the code, outlining the means by which geometry is specified and how photon interactions have been modelled.
