Cosmogenic Working Group

Members:

  • Angela Reisetter
  • Chao Zhang
  • Dongming Mei
  • Vitaly Kudryavtsev

Goals

  • Track the cosmic ray background from surface down to underground and calculate the flux at different level of depth.
    • Validate Geant4 muon propagation
    • Establish whether to employ MUSUN in C++ as a standard, or just work with Geant4?
  • Estimate the uncertainty of the cosmogenic background in different levels underground.
  • Establish a standard method for each site to prevent having to re-generate the muons each time
  • Continue to interact with Geant4 collaboration on the physics lists relevant to muon production of neutrons
  • Link to the Fluka v Geant working group on physics issues
