After reading the NIM 544 paper, Maurik and I decided that contacting Dr. Mazziotti would be a good idea to see if he would be willing to give us input on simulations and any further information about his code. We also asked him if he would be willing to share his code to help us with cinsiderations in ours.
He responded and described his code. It is broken into two main sections. The first section simulates particles causing for e-h pairs to be produced. The second section deals with the drifiting of the electrons and holes and the deposition of charge and the associated output signal. This code uses the MAXWELL package which can be found at www.ansoft.com for the student version. Dr. Mazziotti is presently working to put the code in a package to send to us for our use.
