Question proton beam-optical photon beam interactions possible? 

Forum: Fast Simulation, Transportation & Others

From: jerimy <jerimy>

Is it possible to simulate the interaction of a proton beam with an optical photon beam? i would like to study polarimetry measurements of a proton beam. to do so i need to simulate the scattering of optical photons (polarized and unpolarized) from a proton beam (polarized and unpolarized).

possible ideas for such simulations:
1) define 2 separate source particles (optical photons and protons) and set the direction of the beams to intersect.
2) define a cylinder filled with "hydrogen ions" as our proton source and then shoot optical photons at it.

Are either of these options possible, or is there a better way to so this???

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
