R&D projects using mc-set
The one thing about a dynamic simulation system, it always changes! mc-set makes it easy to add aditional modules, using a modern programming language (C++), with extensive documentation in the code itself. For this reason, it is easy to undertake further custom development, as well as to have work being done by different developers.
The system can be used for education or research purposes. In education, students can contribute developing particular aspects of the system and through this development learn about the physics and mathematics in use. This work can be done at both undergraduateand post graduate levels as wells as industrial research work.
Time frame for such a project is from 3 months to 1 year or more of duration. The amount of work can be tailored to specific projects, final year for undergraduates or research projects for more advanced students.
In all cases, the project will include theoretical background studies, literature review, running the simulations and working with the simulation results.
Example projects - future system developments
Two types of jointly run projects can be undertaken:
- experimental: running simulations and checking results against experimental data; comparing to other mc simulations
- programming: implementing new procedures and methods; benchmarking program operation
Examples of projects suitable for student participation/future development:
- Implementation of Mott elastic scattering algorithm
- Investigation of different models for secondary electron generation
- Algorithm for geometrical intersection between solid bodies and trajectories
- Implementing display in 3 dimensions using VRML for specimens and trajectories
- Development of CL calculations for multi-layers (including absorption)
- Implementation of scattering calculations for e-SEM (enviromental SEM)
This includes running simulations using mc-set
according to projects that are totally user related, usually for research or industry.
