Validation activity of the Geant4 Low Energy Working Group

Strategy for Validation

The validation activity is carried out according to the following scheme:

1. The migrated Low Energy electromagnetic models are compared with the old ones in order to exclude any possible bug in the migration process
2. The migrated Low Energy electromagnetic models are compared against the corresponding Standard Electromagnetic models
3. Finally all available electromagnetic models (both from Standard and Low Energy) are compared against data libraries and, more in general, against available experimental data. For photon data libraries we actually choose the following: SANDIA, EPDL97 and NIST. The electron models are validated against NIST data.

Selected results are given below:

1. Migration test of the migrated models

2. Comparison between migrated Low Energy and Standard models

3. Comparison against data libraries

Medical applications

Status reports from various Collaborators

Every two months members of the Low Energy Validation sub-group report on their activity and results.

Their work is presented in the access restricted LoweValidationReports pages.


The reader could also consult the pages of the Low Energy Group, where papers and results from Users can be found.
