Monte Carlo simulations for the neutron EDM experiment at TRIUMF

Mr Nicholas Christopher (TRIUMF UCN Collaboration)


UCN source and nEDM experiment are currently under construction at TRIUMF. This poster presents simulations and development of the Monte Carlo program PENTrack, for the nEDM experiment. The latest modifications of PENTrack make it possible to run full Ramsey cycle simulations. This is an invaluable tool for analyzing the systematic and statistical errors associated with the nEDM experiment. The subsequent simulations look at shifts in the Larmor frequency due to inhomogenieties in the magnetic fields. The poster will show the principle of the simulation code, and present first results from PENTrack.
