3 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM3 Outline ► Standard EM package ► Overview on major developments since 2003 ► Validation/comparisons ► EM PhysicsLists ► Acceptance suite ► New developments ► Conclusions

4 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM4 Standard EM package ► Naturally continue Geant3 EM physics ► Include a complete set of models for simulation of electromagnetic processes in the energy range from 1 keV to 10 PeV ► Includes optical photons production and transport ► Focus on HEP experiments, well applicable for instrumentation, space, and medicine studies

5 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM5 Design iteration in Standard EM package ► Standard EM package was one of physics package working from 1 st Geant4 release ► Created using Geant3 expertise ► Used practically in all Geant4 applications  LHC experiments  Space and medicine applications ► Used in production for BaBar for many years ► Some architecture problems were accumulated ► In 2003 the package were redesigned ► New developments were enabled

6 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM6 Major activities since 2003 ► Physics improvements:  Evolutions of multiple scattering model  Hadron ionization was updated  New ion ionization  Muon processes were updated  Updated cross section for Compton effect  Revised PAI models  New high energy processes ► Evolution in optical photons simulation ► Cut per region from G4 5.1 ► Model design from G4 6.0

7 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM7 Hadron/ion ionization (1) ► Corrected Bethe-Bloch formula for the E kin >2 MeV ► ICRU49 parameterization is used for the E kin < 2 MeV ► Scaling relation for other hadrons/ions ► Ion effective charge is recalculated at each step of the particle and is used also for tracking in EM field

8 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM8 Hadron/ion ionization (2) ► Review of corrections to the Bethe-Bloch formula ►  C – shell correction (was asymptotic formula)  G – Mott correction (new)  δ – density correction  F – finite size correction (new)  L 1 - Barkas correction (new)  L 2 - Bloch correction (new) ► New class G4EmCorrections

9 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM9 High order corrections ► Are important at high energies ► Are important for ions ► Are implemented in G4EmCorrections class for both Standard and Low-energy packages ► Finite size: ► Mott:

10 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM10 Result of refinement of stopping power – Geant4 and NIST are within systematic uncertainty of the data

11 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM11 Integral approach ► EM cross sections depend on energy ► Precision of interaction probability depends on step size and energy change ► Integral approach: interaction probability is sampled using integral method (MC’91 Proceedings) ► Integral approach allows to have any step size for ionization constant integral

12 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM12 Performance comparison 5.2/6.2 ► Performance improved after design iteration ► Initialization time smaller by 2 times for complecate geometry and much more for simple geometry ► Size of EM tables smaller by 2 times or more (HARP, CMS) ► CPU per event less at least by 10% ► Higher performance for low cuts Intel 2.4GHz 512 KB

13 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM13 PAI model evolution ► 2 models in G4 6.2:  G4PAIModel  G4PAIPhotonModel ► Ionization in very thin absorbers ► Based on Sandia tables of photo- absorption ► Models can be defined for G4Region (TestEm8) ► Any cut can be used ► Sampling of single clusters in gaseous detectors ► TRD detectors simulation ► Space and medical applications

17 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM17 Geant4/EGSnrs comparisons (Emily Poon results G4 6.1) ► There is an agreement in general on the depth dose profile ► Results are sensitive to cuts and step limits

18 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM18 HEP Calorimetry ► G4 5.2p02 close to G3 ► G4 6.2p02 include integral method ► G4 7.0 include msc modification ► Integral method for tracking and updated model of multiple scattering provide less cut dependent results Average energy deposition in lAr

19 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM19 Geant4 muon interactions ► Basic processes:  Ionisation  Bremsstrahlung  Production of e + e-  Muon-nuclear interactions ► Muon production and transport in Geant4 is available up to 10 PeV Muon differential cross sections

20 M. Maire, MC'2005G4 Standard EM20 Muon energy loss ► Continuous energy loss in Geant4: ► Contribution from processes: ► Ionization ► Bremsstrahlung ► Production of e + e - ► T cut – cut energy ► Transfers above T cut are sampled ► Recent upgrade:  Radiative corrections to ionization at E > 1 GeV  Improve precision of double differential cross section for pair production (biases reduced from 30% to 5%)  Initialization time decreased Total muon energy loss
