Welcome to Nebula

Nebula is an open-source simulator of electron-matter interaction. It can run on GPUs for fast simulations, or on multi-core CPUs if there is no GPU available.

If you use Nebula in a scientific publication, please cite the following paper:

L. van Kessel, C.W. Hagen, "Nebula: Monte Carlo simulator of electron-matter interaction", SoftwareX 12 (2020), 100605

The code is available on github.

Getting started

Nebula consists of two parts: the simulator itself and the "cross-section tool", cstool, that is used for compiling material parameters. You need to run cstool once per material, and then use the resulting file as an input for the simulator.
