应兰州大学核科学与技术学院邀请，加拿大TRIUMF高级研究员Ricardo dos Santos Augusto将于2019年10月8日-19日访问我校并做学术报告。
报告题目：Applications of the Monte Carlo particle interaction and transport code FLUKA
报 告 人：Ricardo dos Santos Augusto
Nowadays, Monte Carlo codes are considered essential in a wide range of activities, from scientific to financial domains. This presentation will focus on the Monte Carlo particle transport and interaction code FLUKA, which is used in various areas of physics, from therapy to space. A short introduction about FLUKA will be provided, summarizing the code's characteristics and capabilities, showing some of its features along with its graphical user interface flair. Some examples of applications of FLUKA simulations at CERN will be briefly detailed, in particular their role in ISOLDE and CERN-MEDICIS operation and commission, respectively.
Dr. Ricardo dos Santos Augusto completed his Msc in Physics Engineering at IST (Technical University of Lisbon) in 2012 and his Ph.D. in hadron-therapy with a CERN-PhD studentship of the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich in 2018. In 2012, he was awarded a governmental grant to work at CERN, in the framework of the CERN-MEDICIS project construction and optimization of medical isotope production. In 2018, Dr. Augusto joined TRIUMF (Canada's national laboratory in particle and nuclear physics) as a simulation specialist responsible for overseeing computational work packages in the framework of radiological protection and safety. Particularly, he is currently responsible for dosimetry and target-station design for the ARIEL and IAMI project (on accelerator-based medical isotope production). He remains one of the key members of the FLUKA collaboration with significant contribution of FLUKA's medical module. Dr. Augusto has authored over a dozen peer reviewed publications and presented his work in several conferences worldwide.
