Programme

PHITS (Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System) is a general purpose Monte Carlo particle transport simulation code developed in collaboration with the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and several institutes all over the world. The code 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 other fields related to particle and heavy ion transport phenomena. Visit the PHITS website for more detailed information.

The course covers the basics, advanced functions and practical applications of PHITS:

  • definition of 3D geometry, sources and tallies including various exercises
  • advanced sessions on variance reduction, definition of force fields, and the CT image handling
  • 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.
