Abstract
A Monte-Carlo simulation package has been developed to model the response of a detector system for ion identification used in conjunction with ion separators following nuclear reactions. The simulation is written predominantly using the GEANT4 framework but utilises the ion transport code MOCADI for accurate separator and reaction modelling. A novel MOCADI-GEANT4 interface has been developed to utilise the parameter file output option of MOCADI as an event generator for the GEANT4 detector simulation. Test simulation results have been compared with experimental data and excellent agreement was observed. The simulation has successfully been used to model a new particle detection system prototype (Lund-York-Cologne CAlorimeter (LYCCA)-0) and... (More)
