Medical Physics Seminar Series on the use of the Geant4 Simulation Package

The Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation environment was developed at CERN for the modeling of the interaction of particles and radiation with matter. Its use spans from high-energy physics through astrophysics to medical physics applications. The Medical Physics Group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy implemented the package on the Palmetto Cluster to run simulations […]

Dr. Ajello featured in “NASA’s Fermi Mission Expands its Search for Dark Matter”

Congratulations to our very own Dr. Marco Ajello for being featured in the NASA story, NASA’s Fermi Mission Expands its Search for Dark Matter. Dr. Ajello and his collaborators from NASA’s Fermi Mission utilized data from the Large Area Telescope (LAT) to analyze possible sources of the extragalactic gamma-ray background (EGB). In a paper published in the April 14 […]
