The following software tools can directly be used by WINDOWS/XP users at GSI.
Click on the links below or go into the directory "P:\FRSTools" to run the program of your choice.
(Windows/XP on the central XP Server of GSI is accessible from every X-Terminal at GSI)
Some of the programs may also be used outside GSI. Please look up the subfolders below.
The codes are freely available for application in research.
For Windows/XP users > Run AMADEUS ( P:\frstools\amadeus.bat )
AMADEUS (A magnet and degrader utility for scaling) is a versatile program to predict
nuclear, electronic and atomic interactions of relativistic heavy ions in matter, to
treat the deflection in magnetic systems and to calculate relativistic
transformations. The details of the calculations are listed in
the PhD thesis of Eckhard Hanelt (IKDA, TU Darmstadt, 1992, GSI DISS. 92-05)
BENESH (Source text)
For Windows/XP users > Run BENESH ( P:\frstools\benesh.bat )
BENESH calculates the total nuclear interaction cross section according to the analytical formula of Benesh, Cook and Vary (Phys. Rev. C 40 (1989) 1198).
BETACORR is a Monte-Carlo Code, which
simulates the time sequences in an experiment with implantations
of beta-radioactive ions under the conditions encountered at the FRS. BETACORR
produces time-correlation spectra in forward and backward time direction in
order to check the experimental conditions, which are required to extract
spectroscopic information like half lives, branching ratios etc. See source code for further
details. The program has been developed by
Teresa Kurtukian and Karl-Heinz Schmidt.
For Windows/XP users > Run BF ( P:\frstools\bf.bat )
BF calculates the macroscopic part of the fission barrier according to
For Windows/XP users > Run EMD ( P:\frstools\emd.bat )
EMD (Electromagnetic dissociation) treats the electromagnetic interactions of
relativistic heavy ions with target atoms. The parameters used in the calculation
listed in the PhD thesis of Axel Grewe (IKDA, TU Darmstadt,
For Windows/XP users > Run EPAX ( P:\frstools\epax.bat )
EPAX is a systematics of isotopic cross sections in projectile fragmentation. For the
original version of EPAX see K. Suemmerer, W. Bruechle, D. J. Morrissey, M. Schaedel, B.
Szweryn, Yang Weifan, Phys. Rev. C 42 (1990) 2546. The cross sections are calculated
with EPAX Version 2 (K. Suemmerer, B. Blank, Phys. Rev. C (2000) 034607).
FLYBY is a Monte-Carlo Code, which
follows the energy loss of individual particles in a layer of
matter. The effect of ionic charge-changing reactions is explicitely treated.
Three charge states (zero, one and two electrons) are supported. The program was
designed to study the response of an ionization chamber to high-energetic ions
which carry up to three electrons. The program has been developed by
Steffen Steinhäuser and Karl-Heinz Schmidt.
For Windows/XP users > Run KAROL ( P:\frstools\karol.bat )
KAROL calculates the total nuclear interaction cross section according to the microscopic model of Karol (Phys. Rev. C 11 (1975) 1203). Thomas Brohm (Nucl. Phys. A 569 (1994) 821) and recently Florence Vives introduced more realistic parameters for the nuclear density distributions.
For Windows/XP users > Run SATAN ( P:\frstools\satan.bat ) and in the SATAN command window type LIESCHEN
LIESCHEN (Named after the LISE spectrometer at GANIL) predicts the ion-optical
separation of secondary beams with the Fragment Separator of GSI. The details of the
calculations are described in the PhD thesis of Eckhard Hanelt (IKDA, TU Darmstadt, 1992,
GSI DISS. 92-05), in K.-H. Schmidt, E. Hanelt, H. Geissel, G. Muenzenberg, J.-P. Dufour,
Nucl. Instr. Meth. A 260 (1987) 287-303, and E. Hanelt, K.-H. Schmidt, Nucl. Instr. Meth.
A 321 (1992) 434-438
For Windows/XP users > Run MCSLgvin ( P:\frstools\mcslgvin.bat )
MCSLgvin is a Monte-Carlo Code, which solves the Langevin
equation numerically for the evolution of a nucleus in fission direction. The
program is implemented in SATAN. The values of several global parameters can be
changed in order to select specific model parameters. The results can be viewed
immediately in form a SATAN analysers. The program also calculates the Mean
First Passage Time and the Kramers decay constant. The program has been
developed by Christelle Schmitt and Karl-Heinz Schmidt.
For Windows/XP users > Run SATAN ( P:\frstools\satan.bat )
SATAN (System for the analysis of tremendous amounts of nuclear data) is the successor
of the first GSI standard data analysis package to analyse experimental data, to perform
model calculations, and to visualise the results.
SEETRAM (Source text)
For Windows/XP users > Run SEETRAM ( P:\frstools\seetram.bat )
SEETRAM predicts the sensitivity of the SEcondary-Electron Transmission Monitor according to a systematics of Thomas Brohm and Christine Ziegler (1994).
SILBERBERG (Source text)
For Windows/XP users > Run SILBERBERG ( P:\frstools\silberberg.bat )
SILBERBERG is a systematics of isotopic cross sections in
proton-induced spallation reactions. "Updated Partial Cross Sections of
Proton-Nucleus Reactions" by Silberberg, Tsao and Barghouty, 1998, Ap.J. 501,
