Braidwood Background and Simulation Group


Goals: coordinate work on the simulation packages used by the Braidwood experiment. The primary tools under development are ReactorFsim, a fast parametric simulation, with a separate stand-alone muon veto/passive shielding simulation that can share information with ReactorFsim. We are also beginning development of a full detector simulation with GEANT4.

We focus on using the simulation tools for background calculations as discussed in Section 2.3 of the 2004 R&D proposal. Group leaders: Tim Bolton and Matt Worcester.
