Question Need help starting to put together a Physics List for an RFQ linac 

Forum: Physics List
Date: 12 Jul, 2010
From: Marlin Mixon <Marlin Mixon>

Hi folks. I'm designing an RFQ accelerator where my objective is just to get the correct geometry and the right RF to accelerate deuterons (2.5 MeV is my goal). I've got my initial geometry into Geant4 and now I'm ready to make my physics list but I could use a little help putting it together. I'm not too interested in defining a lot of different particle types like I've seen in a lot of models. What would really be helpful is if someone could provide a little bullet list of what I'd need. I don't mind figuring out the details but the problem I'm finding is I'm not a physicist (though it's really fun stuff and I'm enjoying learning as I go) but there are just so many features and options that I'm finding myself wading through a myriad of options and having to understand each one just so I can decide whether or not I need to include it (and the answer is usually not!). I realize that there might be some d-d fusion reactions so I might include that in the future. What I'm really interested in, though, is what RF options I'll need to include in my model (I want to explore energizing the electrodes with 120, 350 and 450 Mhz). Also interested in observing collimation of the beam, bunching of the particles and, of course, acceleration.

I appreciate any help any of you can provide.
