Meiga, a Dedicated Framework Used for Muography Applications
The design and development of detectors for muography are in constant demand of the usage of semiempirical models and simulations. In this contribution, we present Meiga, a framework conceived for simulation and reconstruction of muography applications. This framework takes a simulated muon flux at ground level and propagates it through a given material where the detectors are located. It uses Geant4 as a toolkit for the simulation of traversing particles through the material and computes the signal produced when muons pass through any type of detector at the desired location. The framework provides interfaces to the detector models and a hierarchical structure for data accessing, encompassing the need of simulating different scenarios to optimize detector design in a versatile and easy-to-use framework.
