About the authors

 

  • Lorenzo Brualla is Privatdozent at the Medizinische Fakultät of the Universität Duisburg-Essen, in Germany. His current research activities are related with the application of the Monte Carlo method to the study of hyper-pure germanium detectors and to the simulation of complex radiotherapy and dosimetry problems. He is the author of the penEasyLinac code and of several variance-reduction techniques. He has also worked in the field of quantum Monte Carlo in condensed matter physics for the study of low temperature systems.

  • Josep Sempau is senior researcher at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. His main research topics are the development of Monte Carlo algorithms for the simulation of radiation transport and their application in the field of medical physics. He has also made contributions to the study of environmental radioactivity and its correlation with meteorological variables. He is co-author of the Monte Carlo codes PENELOPE, penEasy and DPM.
