Full Integration of Opticks with Geant4

R&D task number: G4RD13

Full Integration of Opticks with Geant4


Plan and deliverables:

Creation of an extended example in which optical photon production and tracing is offloaded to the GPU while the non-optical physics processes are executed on the CPU,
with the initial focus on modeling of liquid Argon TPC's.
Gradual implementation of optical physics processes and features currently not implemented in Opticks, e.g. Wave Length Shifting, as needed.

Lead and main developers: K. L. Genser, H-J. Wenzel, (S. Y. Jun)
