School On Detectors And GEANT4 Simulation
22nd - 26th April, 2024
  • About the School

    Inter-University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), an autonomous Centre of University Grants Commission under Ministry of Education, GOI, plans to conduct a school-cum-training on “School on Detectors and GEANT4 Simulation" on 22 nd - 26 th April, 2024. School is meant for young researchers (students pursuing PhDs, post-doctoral fellows and young Faculties and Scientists) with working knowledge of Radiation Detectors. Basic Knowledge of Coding in C++ and working experience in Linux OS are prerequisites.

    Theme Of The School

    The school covers relevant topics in detectors and its simulations. Radiation Detectors are our eyes to look at the invisible world of energy and matter. They are widely used in the field of Physics, Medicine, Home Security, Industry, etc and even in daily life.The behavior of the detectors depends on the diverse physical processes occurring during the interaction of radiation with matter. Geant (GEometry ANd Tracking) is a toolkit for simulating the passage of particles/radiation through matter using Monte Carlo methods. It provides facilities for handling geometry, tracking, detector response, run management, visualization and user interface.
