* A Geant4 application for Monte Carlo simulation of radiation detectors *


ParticleCounter is an application for Monte Carlo simulation of radiation detectors based on the Geant4 toolkit.

The ParticleCounter application (version 5.1) has been tested on Geant4  version 10.1 (patch-03) using Ubuntu 18.04 or later. 

ParticleCounter is currently focused on simulations with 3He-filled neutron counters. Simulation of other kinds of radiation detectors, such as HPGe or silicon, is also possible by extracting track information from the Monte Carlo simulation.
