I would like to do a 3D model for a sclerantininan coral to study its interaction with light. In particular I interested in understand the influence of the geometry of the skeleton in the algae absorption. I think Geant4 could be very helpful to address this problem and greatly appreciate your advice and recommendations.
The geometry of a coral can be very complex, but it could start with a simple geometry such as the fungi coral, which could be modeled in a very simple way as a collection of cylinders lying down around a central point.
Actually we have done a 2D model (http://dx.doi.org/10.1364/AO.49.005032 ) with a Monte Carlo simulation (MCML, Multi Carlo Multi Layered). For this we had to build experimental arrangements and methods for estimating inherent optical properties (absorption and scattering coefficients and anisotropy parameter) for the coral skeleton and the micro algae.
These optical characterization methods could also be used to characterize optically sliced turbid media or microparticle suspensions. Which could serve to increase the database of the optical properties of Geant4. If you want we can talk in more detail about it.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
