MC X-Ray

MC X-Ray is a new Monte Carlo program that is an extension of the Monte Carlo programs Casino and Win X-Ray since it computes the complete x-ray spectra from the simulation of electron scattering in solids of various types of geometries. MC X-Ray allows up to 256 different regions in the materials having shape of spheres, cylinders and combinations of horizontal and vertical planes. All these regions can have a different composition. This program was written by Pierre Michaud under the supervision of Pr. Gauvin. Dr. Hendrix Demers improved and validated the x-ray spectrum computation of MC X-Ray.

Win X-Ray

This program is a Monte Carlo simulation of electron trajectory in solid. This new Monte Carlo programs, Ray, is a extension of the well known Monte Carlo program CASINO, which includes statistical distributions for the backscattered electrons, trapped electrons, energy loss and phi rho z curves for X-ray. The new added features in Ray are: the complete simulation of the X-ray spectrum, the charging effect for insulating specimen.

CASINO

The world-famous CASINO, where CASINO stands for "monte CArlo SImulation of electroN trajectory in sOlids".

Prof. Gauvin initiated the first version with his graduate students at the time he was at Sherbrooke University. You can access to the CASINO website here.
