Geant4 atomic relaxation

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The Geant4 Simulation Toolkit encompasses the Low Energy Electromagnetic package, implementing a precise treatment of electromagnetic interactions of particles with matter down to energies of a few hundred eV. This package includes a component handling the process of atomic relaxation; it models the de-excitation of an atom left in an excited state by the creation of a vacancy originated by a primary, and the emission of X-ray fluorescence and Auger electrons The design of the package and the physics models implemented are presented. © 2004 IEEE.
