PHITS (Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System) is a general purpose Monte Carlo particle transport simulation code developed under a collaboration between Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and several institutes all over the world. It can simulate the transport of nearly all particles over wide energy ranges, using nuclear reaction models and nuclear data libraries. PHITS can support your research in the fields of accelerator technology, radiotherapy, space radiation, and in many other fields which are related to particle and heavy ion transport phenomena. Visit the PHITS website for more detailed information.
This tutorial covers the basics, advanced functions and practical applications of PHITS. The course begins with sessions dedicated to definition of 3D geometry, sources and tallies including various exercises, followed by advanced sessions on variance reduction, definition of force fields, and the CT image handling. In the latter half of the tutorial, participants can perform their own PHITS simulation under the support of tutors during the individual hands-on sessions. Through this tutorial, participants can learn most of the features of PHITS, from basic to advanced, using the lecture materials of the standard package and users’ own input/output files.
More information will be available soon.
