- Come to NEXMAP and help us develop new features for the McStas and McXtrace simulation packages!

The NEXMAP simulation effort revolves around two world class software packages; McStas (neutron scattering) and McXtrace (X-rays). The packages are designed to simulate any and all neutron and X-ray scattering instruments and experiments.

McStas and McXtrace are:

  • Open Source (GPL)
  • Multiplatform
  • Fast and Scalable
  • Extendable

Monte Carlo & Ray Tracing 

McStas and McXtrace both use Monte Carlo methods and of Ray-Tracing. 

  • Each ray is independent: The code becomes inherently parallel and suitable for cluster computations.
  • Each ray represents any number of of real particles: Efficient calculations and decouples simulation run time from the source.


Use of the codes

The softwares are being used world-wide at neutron and X-ray facilities - e.g. the ESS neutron source and the MAX-IV X-ray synchrotron in Lund. 

The Project

You will assist us in developing software for new functionality in McStas or McXtrace, either at the software, algorithm or physics level.

We will easily tailor a course matching your expertise and interest!

Requirements

Either
  • Mathematician / computer scientist with taste for physics
  • Physicist without fear of algorithms

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
