The MCNPX-PoliMi code is a modified version of MCNPX v. 2.7.0 that provides unique capabilities for simulating correlated-particle measurements and detector response. This workshop will introduce new users to the capabilities of the MCNPX-PoliMi code and acquaint experienced users with new features.

  • MCNPX-PoliMi introduction
  • MCNPX-PoliMi source capabilities, including new models of fission
  • Spontaneous and neutron/gamma induced fission
  • Alpha-n sources • Combined sources such as MOX fuel
  • Detector-response simulations with the MPPost code
  • Organic scintillator (e.g. liquids and plastic)
  • Capture detectors (e.g. He-3)
  • Inorganic scintillators (e.g. NaI)
  • Special detectors (capture-gated)
  • Simulations of time-of-flight experiments
  • Simulations of multiplicity experiments

Laptops are not required, however participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop to  run examples shown by the instructors. Computer equipment is not provided.

Questions: You may email your questions to Shaun D. Clarke at [email protected].
