An event generator for simulations of complex β-decay experiments

D. Jordan, A. Algora, J. L. Tain

Research output: Article

Abstract

This article describes a Monte Carlo event generator for the design, optimization and performance characterization of beta decay spectroscopy experimental set-ups. The event generator has been developed within the Geant4 simulation architecture and provides new features and greater flexibility in comparison with the current available decay generator.
