Geant4 advanced examples illustrate realistic applications of Geant4 in typical experimental environments. Most of them also show the usage of analysis tools (such as histograms, ntuples and plotting), various visualization features and advanced user interface facilities, together with the simulation core.
Note: Maintenance and updates of the code is under the responsibility of the authors. These applications are therefore not subject to regular system testing and no guarantee can be provided.
The advanced examples include:
air_shower , a simulation of the ULTRA detector with Fresnel lenses for UV and charged particles detection in cosmic rays.
brachytherapy , illustrating a typical medical physics application simulating energy deposit in a Phantom filled with soft tissue.
hadrontherapy , illustrating a application simulating an hadron therapy beam line for medical physics.
medical_linac , illustrating a typical medical physics application simulating energy deposit in a Phantom filled with water for a typical linac used for intensity modulated radiation therapy. The experimental set-up is very similar to one used in clinical practice.
microbeam , simulates the cellular irradiation beam line installed on the AIFIRA electrostatic accelerator facility located at CENBG, Bordeaux-Gradignan, France.
purging_magnet , illustrating an application that simulates electrons traveling through a 3D magnetic field; used in a medical environment for simulating a strong purging magnet in a treatment head.
radiation_monitor , illustrating an application for the study of the effects of a chip carrier on silicon radiation monitoring devices used in the LHC environment.
