Simulation of the 6NM-64


The application is based on Geant4 and aims to the determination of the 6NM-64 detection efficiency for various particle beams (download). Three elements are provided:

Please read the manual for user instructions.

* Notice: Geant4 has moved to version 10.However, the application uses Geant4.9.6 and the corresponding datasets.
