TOU Model in Geant4 Catania, Feb28-Mar1 2011F. Borsa- INAF OABrera Simulation with the use of Geant4  All the lenses in BK7  Tube: 2.5mm AlBeMet  Back shield: Pb

Radiation model from SPENVIS  1 year fluence (2015) of solar protons at solar maximum at 1.01 AU Catania, Feb28-Mar1 2011F. Borsa- INAF OABrera  Model agrees with simple geometry test TEST: sphere of Al 3mm  Underestimating high energies? Expected 3.5krad -> Obtained 3.2krad

Radiation simulated Catania, Feb28-Mar1 2011F. Borsa- INAF OABrera  Almost 10^13 p+/cm^2: time consuming!  Sphere surface with isotropic radiation: 1m radius  Simulated 1 event on 10^8  Range: 0.1 – 500 MeV Vacuum P+

Radiation: results Catania, Feb28-Mar1 2011F.

Next steps Conclusion  The model created with Geant4 reproduces results comparable to preliminary analysis made on SPENVIS, and can simulate the radiation received by each lens Next steps  Modeling the mechanical part (tube, baffle, back shield, …)  Improving the fit for the proton spectrum  Modeling real materials for all lenses  Increasing statistics Catania, Feb28-Mar1 2011F.
