A Monte Carlo based lookup table for spectrum analysis of turbid media in the reflectance probe regime
Fibreoptic diffuse reflectance spectroscopy offers a method for characterising phantoms of biotissue with specified optical properties. For a commercial reflectance probe (six source fibres surrounding a central collection fibre with an interfibre spacing of 480 μm; R4007, Ocean Optics, USA) we have constructed a Monte Carlo based lookup table to create a function called getR(μ{sub a}, μ'{sub s}), where μ{sub a} is the absorption coefficient and μ'{sub s} is the reduced scattering coefficient. Experimental measurements of reflectance from homogeneous calibrated phantoms with given optical properties are compared with the predicted reflectance from the lookup table. The deviation between experiment andmore » 
About the use of the MonteCarlo code based tracing algorithm and the volume fraction method for S n full core calculations
The tracing algorithm that is implemented in the geometrical module of MonteCarlo transport code MCU is applied to calculate the volume fractions of original materials by spatial cells of the mesh that overlays problem geometry. In this way the 3D combinatorial geometry presentation of the problem geometry, used by MCU code, is transformed to the user defined 2D or 3D bitmapped ones. Next, these data are used in the volume fraction (VF) method to approximate problem geometry by introducing additional mixtures for spatial cells, where a few original materials are included. We have found that in solving realistic 2D andmore » 
Monte Carlo solution methods in a momentbased scalebridging algorithm for thermal radiative transfer problems: Comparison with Fleck and Cummings
We have developed a momentbased scalebridging algorithm for thermal radiative transfer problems. The algorithm takes the form of wellknown nonlineardiffusion acceleration which utilizes a loworder (LO) continuum problem to accelerate the solution of a highorder (HO) kinetic problem. The coupled nonlinear equations that form the LO problem are efficiently solved using a preconditioned Jacobianfree NewtonKrylov method. This work demonstrates the applicability of the scalebridging algorithm with a Monte Carlo HO solver and reports the computational efficiency of the algorithm in comparison to the wellknown FleckCummings algorithm.

Calculation of energetic dualenergy detector efficiency using MCNP and GEANT Monte Carlo codes
The use of dualenergy detectors is a powerful tool in homeland security to identify materials atomic number in objects submitted to an Xray analysis. In this work, the Monte Carlo methodology has been applied to study the response of a dualenergy lineal detector made of two scintillator materials, irradiated with a 160 KV photon spectrum emitted by an Xray tube. To that, two different Monte Carlo codes have been used in the simulations, the MCNP5 and GEANT codes. The study of the energetic efficiency of a dualenergy detector has been developed by the simulation of several monoenergetic beams (10, 20,...,more »
