Several proton beams with spread out Bragg peaks
From UCL HEP PBT Wiki
This tutorial will based on a modified version of Hadrontherapy example provided by the Italian INFN Institute. For more information visit the Hadrontherapy website. This totorial produces spread out Bragg peak curve. It is produced by a modulation system that spreads the beam in energy. This system consists of a rotating wheel of different thicknesses. The wheel rotates around an axis parallel to the proton beam axis.
Setting up the environment
- Connect to HEP cluster and create folder ProtonSBFolder in your area
ssh -X email@example.com password: type your password here cd /home/username/ mkdir ProtonSBFolder cd ProtonSBFolder
- Setup your environment
How to get the code
- Copy the code to your working directory and rename it
cp -r /unix/pbt/tutorials/basic/ProtonSB . mv ProtonSB ProtonSB_source
How to run the code
- Inside /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ create a directory
- To compile the code enter this directory and run cmake and make
cd ProtonSB_build cmake -DGeant4_DIR=/unix/pbt/software/dev /home/username/ProtonSBFolder/ProtonSB_source make
- Run macro proton.mac.
